Spring practice doesn’t get underway until March 4th, so if you’re looking for some nuggets or tidbits to tide you over until then, the best I’ve got are a couple of comments from Coach Richt last night:
“It’s going good,” Richt said. “We’re installing the defense, mostly, with the coaches and our coordinator is making sure the coaches understand, and we’re feeding it little by little to the players.”
Grantham, who was the Dallas Cowboys’ defensive line coach last season, appears to bring a new level of intensity to that unit, according to Richt. If so, it’s possible that Grantham would fit the same mold as Brian VanGorder, who once was the Bulldogs’ defensive coordinator and currently holds that same position with the Atlanta Falcons.
“We like a lot of things about (Grantham),” Richt said. “He’s a great communicator and has got some presence about him that I think the guys will respect and enjoy.”
