Georgia DC Todd Grantham leaving for Louisville

Georgia now has two defensive coaching vacancies on their staff.

According to ESPN, Bulldogs defensive coordinator Todd Grantham is leaving for Louisville to join Bobby Petrino, where he will become the Cardinals’ defensive coordinator.

Grantham was one of the SEC’s highest paid assistant coaches and made around $850,000.

Louisville went after Alabama’s director of player personnel Kevin Steele, but Steele declined the offer.

The Bulldogs’ defense has been one of the most underachieving units in college football the last few seasons, even with NFL talent all over the field.

UGA defensive backs coach Scott Lakatos recently left Georgia for ‘personal reasons’.

Update: Grantham is expected to be paid $1 million per season.
