Multiple outlets are reporting the University of Alabama has found its new men’s basketball coach.
ESPN and CBS Sports report that Avery Johnson has agreed in principle to be the next head coach of the Crimson Tide program.
Johnson, who spent the past several years as an analyst for ESPN, previously coached in the NBA with Dallas, New Jersey/Brooklyn.
The University of Alabama has yet to confirm the hire of Johnson. He is set to replace Anthony Grant, who was fired after six seasons as the head coach of the men’s basketball program.
