After a whirlwind discovery period sent the school's eight-person search panel back to the drawing board last week, the College of Charleston Cougars finally have their new head coach.

Former Clemson assistant coach Earl Grant has reportedly accepted the position left vacant when the school fired Doug Wojcik amid allegations of physical and verbal abuse a month ago, according to the Post and Courier.

The announcement comes just in time, too, with only 31 days left before the official start of college basketball season.

CofC president Glenn McConnell sent out an email on Tuesday announcing the hiring, and the school is expected to make the announcement official on Friday.

"I believe the College of Charleston has a boundless opportunity with Coach Earl Grant, and I am confident he will help launch a new beginning full of excellence, teamwork and success," McConnell said.
