Georgia defensive coordinator Todd Grantham to return
Despite a poor performance from the Georgia defense this season, Mark Richt says his defensive coordinator will return in 2014.
Georgia's defense struggled quite a bit in 2013. The Bulldogs finished eleventh in the SEC, allowing 29.8 points per game, and it led to some speculation that defensive coordinator Todd Grantham could find himself looking for a new gig this winter.
Speculation that Mark Richt put to an end on Sunday.
"Yeah. Everybody should be back," Richt told reporters when asked about Grantham's status. "I mean everybody's gotta do what they've gotta do, as far as if they have opportunities and all that kind of thing. But we've got some things we've certainly got to get better at.
"But the continuity is a good thing for Georgia."
A Georgia defense that finished sixth in the SEC in 2012 after allowing 19.6 points per game returned only four starters this season, and Grantham had a young -- though talented -- group to work with. Which no doubt led to the regression. That being said, it's the second straight season the Bulldogs unit has regressed.
It finished fourth in total defense in the SEC in 2011, sixth in 2012 and now eighth in 2013. So with Grantham heading into the final season of his contract in 2014, if there isn't improvement, Mark Richt may find that continuity isn't
