Todd Grantham Named Georgia Football Associate Head Coach

The Athens Banner-Herald's Marc Weiszer caught an interesting item in the 2012 University of Georgia football media guide - defensive coordinator Todd Grantham has received an unpublicized promotion of sorts, as he's listed as the associate head coach.

Grantham's deal was reworked in the offseason after a hugely successful run for the UGA defense in Grantham's 3-4 scheme in 2011, moving his annual salary to $825,000 on a deal that extends to 2014.

The title is of little significance in terms of duties or responsibilities, unless head coach Mark Richt were to be absent or removed from a game. However, it's worth noting that Grantham has stated before that he'd eventually like to become a head coach, and that a clause exists in his deal to waive a contract buyout if Grantham were to leave UGA for a head coaching job in the NFL or college.
