UGA Working On A New Deal For Grantham

Mark Richt isn’t the only man on the Georgia staff who’s staring at a contract extension.  According to UGA athletic director Greg McGarity, defensive coordinator Todd Grantham will also be rewarded for his work in 2011:

“We recognize the job that Todd has done leading our defense.  We’re talking about it, we’re working on it.  Recruiting is going on right now.  We’re working on making sure that Todd stays at the University of Georgia.  We want to make sure he knows he’s appreciated…

The focus to me is more or less longevity on the front end.  The salaries are things you can do periodically.  There’s no real urgency there. … With respect to Mark and with respect to Todd, I think it would be a hard argument to say we’re not being fair to them, judging from where they rank among their peers.”

Grantham currently has one year remaining on a three-year deal that pays him $750,000 per year.  In November, his agent leaked word that he wanted a multi-year extension for his client.

Georgia ranked 5th in the nation in total defense this past season, allowing just 277 yards per game.
