Eddie Gran’s name is being thrown around for one of the top jobs in college football.
Yesterday we learned Jeremy Pruitt has hired away Georgia offensive coordinator Jim Chaney to lead the Volunteers’ offense. In search of a new play-caller, Kirby Smart may stay within the SEC East.
“A name to watch at Georgia is Kentucky OC Eddie Gran,” Tweeted SB Nation senior college football writer Steven Godfrey. “Wildcats were conservative this season but Gran’s Cincinnati offenses were very explosive. He’s also a very strong Florida recruiter.”
In spite of the rage he incites amongst some Kentucky fans, Gran’s held in high regards around the college football coaching world. If Gran becomes one of Smart’s top candidates, it would be awfully hard to turn down the chance to coach Jake Fromm, D’Andre Swift and Co. to a potential national title.
