Grantham staying at Florida
Former Pulaski County High School and Virginia Tech star lineman Todd Grantham has decided to remain the defensive coordinator at Florida and has turned down the opportunity to return to the NFL for the same job with the Cincinnati Bengals.
Previously Grantham has been a defensive line coach for the Cowboys and d-coordinator for the Cleveland Browns. He was the top defensive coach for Dan Mullen at Mississippi State, and after Mullen got the head coaching position at Florida went to Gainesville where he is the Gators’ defensive coordinator today. According to reports, Grantham’s decision to turn down a multi-million dollar offer from the Bengals was an overall family decision.
