Just got the same notification on my phone, so I guess it's down to rob Ryan and the mystery target

Guessing he made some commitments to some recruits, and was conflicted.

Hoping we make a play on Derek Mason.

*** Grantham withdraws name from consideration for Saints job



Statement from*Todd Grantham*through UGA Sports Communications ..."I want to thank Sean Payton and the New Orleans Saints organization for the opportunity to interview and get to know them. 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 This is where our heart is and today I have withdrawn my name from consideration for the position with the Saints.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."

Maybe it was a "you can't hire your own assistants" issue?

My guess is Payton told him he wasn't getting the job, so now he's saving face with UGA and Richt.

Well I'd be curious to see how the interview with Ryan went. If SP and Ryan can't jive then we'll need a plan C... maybe D.

Perhaps his statement above is the way he feels. If so, I respect him and his devotion to UGA and his team.
