In only one day after interviewing with the New Orleans Saints, Georgia defensive coordinator Todd Grantham has withdrawn his name from the Saints' vacant defensive coordinator search.
That would seemingly leave Rob Ryan as the guy taking the job, who conveniently interviewed today for the job. Grantham must have been told he's not getting the job, and decided to prempt the matter with this statement:
"I want to thank Sean Payton and the New Orleans Saints organization for the opportunity to interview and get to know them,” Grantham said, via the New Orleans Times-Picayune.
“They are a first class organization in every respect. As I said Wednesday, Georgia is a great place, my family loves it here, and I do as well."
“This is where our heart is and today I have withdrawn my name from consideration for the position with the Saints. I’m excited to start preparations for another season and along with the rest of our defensive staff look forward to coaching some really good returning players as well as developing some very talented newcomers.”
