Florida DC Todd Grantham comments on sideline shouting match with Dan Mullen during Kentucky game
Todd Grantham says there’s nothing to worry about after TV cameras caught Florida coach Dan Mullen tearing into his defensive coordinator.
“It’s a competitive deal,” Grantham told reporters in his Tuesday media availability. “We’re all in it for one goal: to go win. We’ve had a lot of success, and we have a lot of respect for each other and what we do. And because of that respect, we’re allowed to express our opinions on things and do what’s best for the team.”
Grantham made it clear that all is well between the two.
“We’re good,” Grantham added. “We’re great. I think because the respect we have for each other, the ability to have our opinions, it has allowed us to grow as coaches and our program to grow. We’ve won a lot of games together and look forward to winning many more.”
UF in-house writer Scott Carter shared Saturday that he saw the two together at a Gainesville restaurant after the game.

Grantham’s defense played notably better after Mullen’s outburst. The cameras will certainly be watching to see if Mullen tears into his assistant on the Neyland Stadium sidelines Saturday.
