It could be Trent Johnson or Anthony Grant at LSU

SAN ANTONIO -- Seems I'm one of the last people in the country who hasn't pulled out of the LSU search, but rest assured I'm close. Tony Bennett is no longer a candidate. Neither is Oliver Purnell or Travis Ford. That leaves Notre Dame's Mike Brey, VCU's Anthony Grant, Stanford's Trent Johnson and Ole Miss' Andy Kennedy as the only other known high-profile candidates. But multiple sources told on Wednesday morning that Brey and Kennedy are no longer involved, meaning it appears an offer could be made to Johnson or Grant at some point soon.

Johnson makes sense because he's losing the Lopez Twins, plus he only has one year remaining on his contract. A possible five-year deal at LSU would provide security. As for Grant, it's just as simple as moving up the proverbial ladder, and a  move from the CAA to the SEC is clearly a move up.

What exactly is the 'proverbial latter'?

C' least have someone proof read it.

Stanford may be kicking itself....

While "repeat" coaches often don't lead to great success (even Walsh at Stanford), with Montgomery working in the ADs office, it probably would have been nice to have him as a fallback IF Johnson goes to LSU....but instead he is at the hated rivals!
