I thought some UGA fans are unhappy with Grantham?

Some of us have unrealistic expectations after Van Gorder's run here.

The thing is though, offenses have changed so much in the last 8-9 years, it's almost impossible to replicate that success unless your name is Nick Saban.

That said, I thought our defense should have been a little better this year, but the defense alone didn't cost any games, which is much more than can be said about Willie Martinez's defenses. I'm not going to be picky with a 12-2 season when I was thinking 9-10 wins before the season.

Who are possible replacements if Grantham leaves? Kirby Smart? I mean Garner is gone now...

Coach Belin? He kicked ass when he was here

Lorenzo Ward?

Nah...Ward probably feels he has a decent shot to interview for HC at SC when Spurrier retires.

Not saying it would happen, but would make sense that he'd be given an interview.

I mean if he was a DC at Georgia and was successful here too he'd obviously still be interviewed at South Carolina. We currently pay Grantham 60% more than Ward is being paid.

And if UGA came calling, USC would pony up.

As far as CTG goes...if he indeed doesn't whole heartedly want to be then I say git! lol

It's one thing to take advantage of a job promotion if it comes up but to be constantly looking for something else just doesn't sit right with me.  I'd much rather have someone who was fully invested in UGA and not just waiting for something better to come along.

Please no. He is the ultimate job hopper and opportunist. Plus I'm starting to be convinced his defenses weren't even that amazing. He had LUDICROUS levels of talent when he coached here.

Per ESPN

A day after interviewing with the New Orleans Saints for their defensive coordinator's job, Todd Grantham withdrew his name from consideration and said Friday he's staying at Georgia as the Bulldogs' defensive coordinator.

Grantham issued a news release that read: "I want to thank Sean Payton and the New Orleans Saints organization for the opportunity to interview and get to know them. They are a first-class organization in every respect. As I said Wednesday, Georgia is a great place, my family loves it here, and I do as well. This is where our heart is. I'm excited to start preparations for another season, and along with the rest of our defensive staff, look forward to coaching some really good returning players as well as developing some very talented newcomers."

Grantham had said Wednesday following Mark Richt's post-signing day news conference that he expected to be at Georgia next season. Grantham has a clause in his contract that would allow him to leave without any kind of financial penalty for an NFL coordinator's job or college head coaching job. Grantham was the Cleveland Browns' defensive coordinator in 2008-09. He'd coached in the NFL for 11 seasons before coming to Georgia in 2011.

Translation:  Grantham wasn't offered an NFL DC job.
