Good news: Eddie Gran isn’t going anywhere


Did you enjoy Kentucky’s offense this season? Then I’ve got great news for you. Today, Eddie Gran told SEC Country’s Joe Mussatto that he’s happy in Lexington and not chasing after any head coaching jobs.

“There were times in my career I chased it,” Gran said. “I just don’t feel I have to do that anymore. I’m as happy as I’ve ever been. I love Lexington.”

The statement comes after Gran was mentioned as candidate for some head coaching vacancies, including South Florida, which eventually hired Charlie Strong. According to Mussatto, before the Louisville game, Mark Stoops went to Mitch Barnhart to lobby for a new contract for Gran, which is now in the works.

Phew. For more details, head on over to SEC Country.

    He’s probably laughing at all this thinking just 10 games ago people were ready to run me (and us) out of town.

    Welcome to Lexington, Mr. Gran. Here’s hoping you and coach Stoops enjoy many years of success at Kentucky. Looking forward to the bowl game and next season already!

    He’s either here for the long haul or will be taking another job next week. Pretty much every coach who ever leaves a school for another job claims he’s not right up until he does.
