Virginia Commonwealth is working to hang on to Shaka Smart, one of the coaches that UCLA has on its shopping list.

Athletic department officials at Virginia Commonwealth are working on enhancements for the basketball program, according to a Richmond Times Dispatch story.

A new practice facility, increased pay for assistant coaches and a bigger recruiting  budget are things Smart is seeking, according to the Times Dispatch.

Smart makes $1.36-million per season, plus incentives.
