Todd Grantham bares his soul on why he left Athens for Louisville.
SI: So Petrino’s offensive background played a big part in your decision?
TG: That was 100 percent the selling point. When you take a new job, you look at all the factors. From an offensive standpoint, he knows how to put points on the board, and he also knows how to manage a game, and that’s big particularly in the fourth quarter. Being able to team up with that was something that excited me.
Most coaches knew how to manage a game in the fourth quarter against Grantham’s defenses, so I ‘m not sure what’s so special about that.
