Georgia's Todd Grantham going to Louisville
According to a report, Georgia defensive coordinator Todd Grantham is leaving to take the same position at Louisville.
It looks like Georgia has a vacancy on its coaching staff.
Georgia defensive coordinator Todd Grantham is leaving Athens to take the same position on Bobby Petrino's staff at Louisville. ESPN.com's Joe Schad reports that Grantham has received a five-year deal that will see him paid $1 million a year.
Which would help explain the decision to leave Georgia for Louisville. Grantham was the fifth highest paid assistant in the country -- using USA Today's coaching salary database -- making $850,000 a year at Georgia, but he would now be the fourth-highest paid assistant, trailing only Clemson's Chad Morris, Alabama's Kirby Smart and LSU's John Chavis.
Grantham is the second SEC coordinator to leave for the same position this week, as Alabama offensive coordinator Doug Nussmeier left to take over Michigan's offense.
Grantham, who runs a 3-4 scheme, came to Georgia before the 2010 season. While the Georgia defense finished No. 45 in the nation in total defense this season, it's the lowest the Bulldogs have ever finished under Grantham. In 2011 Georgia's defense was ranked No. 5 in the country.
