FootballScoop.com, arguably the best website on the entire internet for following coaching searches around college football, has confirmed our own report that Eddie Gran has an offer on the table to become the next offensive coordinator under head coach Kirby Smart at Georgia. But in a new update on its story, Football Scoop says Gran was “strongly considering remaining at Kentucky” as of this morning. However, a final decision has not been made either way.
If Gran does remain at Kentucky, it will be a huge win for the program. Yes, Gran has his critics, but continuity is important among the staff and for a young quarterback like Terry Wilson. The last thing we need to see is that offense start back over with yet another new offensive coordinator.
It would also be pretty awesome for a UK assistant to turn down a job at a national contender like Georgia to stay in Lexington. If you had told me a few years ago that any UK assistant would turn down a million dollars at Georgia to stay with Kentucky then I would’ve said that person should be locked away in an insane asylum. Now it could be a reality.
Gran Watch is on high alert.
