Georgia coach Mark Richt plans no changes to his coaching staff, deciding to keep defensive coordinator Todd Grantham despite a disappointing season.
Richt said Sunday that "everybody should be back" after the No. 25 Bulldogs (8-4) finished the regular season with a 41-34 victory over Georgia Tech in double overtime. They will learn their postseason destination next week, with the Gator Bowl looking most likely.
Grantham is a Pulaski County native. He played at Virginia Tech and graduated in 1989.
Georgia struggled on defense with eight new starters, finishing 11th in the Southeastern Conference in points allowed (29.4 per game) and eighth in total yards (381.2). The low point came against Auburn, when two Georgia defenders collided and deflected a pass into the winning 73-yard touchdown with 25 seconds remaining.
Grantham's $850,000-a-year contract runs through the 2015 season. Grantham interviewed with the New Orleans Saints last season for their open defensive coordinator job. The Saints ended up hiring Rob Ryan.
Grantham was the Browns' defensive coordinator for three seasons. He has also worked for the Colts, Texans, and Cowboys. Grantham also has coaching stops at Virginia Tech and Michigan State.
