UGA D.C. search finally coming to an end?

At long last, Georgia fans, your long regional defensive coordinator nightmare might be coming to an end.

44 days and three high-profile disses after firing Willie Martinez, it looks as if head coach Mark Richt is on the verge of filling his vacancy at defensive coordinator.  And he will likely dip into the NFL ranks to do it.

According to Tom Dienhart of Yahoo! Sports, Todd Grantham will become UGA’s next coordinator.  Grantham, whose name first popped up in connection to the job earlier this year, has been the Dallas Cowboys’ defensive line coach for the past two seasons, and was coordinator for the Cleveland Browns for three seasons prior to that.

Grantham has not been a coach at the collegiate level since he was an assistant on Nick Saban‘s Michigan State staff back in 1998.

Dienhart also reports that Grantham will become the third-highest paid assistant coach in the college game, behind only USC’s Monte Kiffin and Texas’ Will Muschamp.

    I will delay my “yipee and sigh of relief” until it is official. Based on yesterday’s roller coaster, I just can’t do “all that” again…….
