Mississippi State is on the hunt for a new defensive coordinator after news broke on Wednesday that Todd Grantham was following coach Dan Mullen to Florida.

In his one year in Starkville, Grantham oversaw a huge defensive improvement for the Bulldogs and will now try to do the same with the Gators.

But, before he gets started in Gainesville, Grantham took some time out of his day to write a classy goodbye note to Mississippi State fans, which he posted on Twitter:

Mullen also brought a couple of other assistants with him to Gainesville, so new Mississippi State coach Joe Moorhead will have a few spots to fill.

It’ll be hard for Moorhead to find a defensive coordinator who can continue Grantham’s positive momentum, but the Bulldogs have plenty of talented athletes on that side of the ball, so it wouldn’t be surprising to see them continue having success in 2018.
