Georgia AD confirms Saints interest in Grantham

The will he/won’t he saga when it comes to Todd Grantham and the NFL is apparently far from over.

One day after playing coy with reporters at a signing day event, athletic director Greg McGarity has confirmed that the Georgia defensive coordinator has informed him the New Orleans Saints have an interest in interviewing for the same position he currently holds. ¬†Grantham’s UGA contract stipulates that the coach must notify the athletic department when he enters into talks on another job.

While McGarity did not specifically state Grantham will interview, it’s believed that the coordinator will interview at some point Thursday.

Grantham has also been connected to the defensive coordinator job with the Philadelphia Eagles. ¬†As Chip Kelly has yet to make a hire there, it’s believed that may still be a possibility for Grantham as well.

    He was upfront with the recruits and those that still chose to come to UGA, were not deceived so I am OK with this. You can’t begrudge a man for trying to improve his lot in life.

    True woebegong, but as a Falcons fan myself I would think Georgia fans would want to see him land anywhere but New Orleans…Oh well, I wish him and you guys nothing but the best of luck…

    I do agree with you there but my guess, is he will not end up there. I am not sure the HC there is ready to concede complete control of the defense to him, and I think that is how Coach Grantham operates the best.
