Thankfully, Grantham-watch has come to an end, at least for now.
Todd Grantham will be remaining at Georgia, turning down the offer to be the New Orleans Saints defensive coordinator, keeping Sean Payton from being one of the most hated men in the state of Georgia.
I mean, can you imagine if Grantham had been lured to NOLA? Payton is already one of the most disliked individuals in the NFL if you are a Falcons fan. Imagine if the same guy had come into Georgia and poached the second-most popular assistant coach in UGA history (maybe) since Erk.
It does not matter much if Grantham’s flirtation with the NFL hurt of help late recruiting. Honestly, Montravius Adams was headed to Auburn once Rodney Garner left, but the trade-off was getting Bellamy – so it’s pretty much a wash-out as far as that goes.
Regardless – Todd Granthem will be back as defensive coordinator. But odds are that NFL overtures may come again. If there is a silver lining, it is that Georgia can come up with a plan to better orchestrate Grantham’s exit and groom a replacement if he opts to head to the NFL in the future.
In other words, not grace the Bulldog Nation with CWM, the Sequel.
