Todd Grantham's Contract: Everybody Just Settle Down...

It's funny how the talk of renewing coaches contracts and pay raises always comes up when a team is winning. A year ago at Georgia, coaches were probably hoping no one mentioned a contract because that talk would have meant somebody was out the door. This year, it has been brought up that head coach Mark Richt will most likely have his contract renewed because he only has two years remaining on it. It looks better for prospective recruits to know that the main man is scheduled to be around their entire college career, thus the contract extension. Next came talk of extending defensive coordinator Todd Grantham's current deal. The Bulldog defense is playing in the neighborhood of spectacularly and the coordinator's contract expires in fourteen months. Georgia athletic director Greg McGarity has said he will not entertain contract discussions untill after the 2011 football season is completed. I would only say that if Georgia continues to play well and finishes strong, I would do what I had to do to keep the key members of the coaching staff intact if I was Mr. McGarity. But he is correct in waiting until after the first of the the year. There's enough time and there is a lot of football left to play.
