UGA DC Grantham leaving for Louisville

Posted: Updated:
ATHENS, Ga. - The following is a release from UGA spokesman Claude Felton:

University of Georgia defensive coordinator Todd Grantham has been offered, and accepted, a similar position at the University of Louisville according to an announcement Sunday by UGA head coach Mark Richt.

"We are appreciative of all the contributions Todd has made to our program and wish him nothing but the best, Richt said. But at the same time the opportunity to work at Georgia is extremely attractive and there already is, and will be, interest from some very, very outstanding coaches."

"We have a lot of defensive players coming back, as well as some outstanding defensive recruits, and there¹s going to be plenty of interest in coaching them.  I'm excited about the prospects of a great defensive coordinator being on board as quickly as possible."

Grantham just completed his fourth season as Georgia¹s defensive coordinator.
