His bags are packed; he’s ready to go.

If you ponder the reality of college football, it’s not really much of surprise that less than two percent of the 1,170 full-time assistants in FBS have been at their current school since 2005.

What’s impressive, though, is how much Dan Mullen has done to contribute to those departure numbers.

Grantham is the sixth defensive coordinator in Mullen’s nine seasons at MSU, following Carl Torbush, Manny Diaz, Geoff Collins, Chris Wilson and Sirmon. Diaz guided the defense in 2010 and again in 2015, leaving the first time for Texas and the second time for Miami.

Given Mullen’s track record and Grantham’s proclivity for seeking greener pastures, what’s the over/under on the number of years Todd stays at Mississippi State?

    Remember when Manny Diaz frustrated us during Aaron Murray’s first year, he was an up and comer.

    The DOT Grantham effect on traffic control lights: Every signal light is green and it barks when James Franklin approaches.

    Grantham’s picture is next to the category of ‘grifter coach’, which is next to Bobby ‘skid marks’ Petrino’s picture.

    Mullen would be dangerous if he had the budget to keep Diaz.

    He stayed three years with Indianapolis, three years with Houston, and three years with Cleveland. He was with Dallas for two years and then Georgia for four. He then spent three years at Louisville.

    So…I’d say the over/under is probably 3 years.

    I’m going 3 and 1/2.
