A million dollars doesn’t go as far as it used to.

Todd Grantham, fresh off a dominating defensive performance in the Belk Bowl an offer to coach defense with the Oakland Raiders, makes more bank.

The Cardinals are reworking Grantham’s four-year deal to pay him as much as $1.4 million annually, Grantham’s agent, Michael Harrison, told ESPN.com. Grantham’s new contract will make him one of the highest paid coordinators in college football.

That’s juuussst a touch more than Georgia’s paying Jeremy Pruitt.  A mere coincidence, no doubt.

One thing’s for sure – Todd’s going to work to earn his keep next season.

Good thing he’s got Harvey-Clemons and Wiggins stepping in.

“We’re very pleased and happy that Todd is going to be staying at the University of Louisville.”

‘Cause you know if there is one guy who appreciates loyalty to a college football program, it’s Bobby Petrino.

Although it sounds like Grantham’s decision was more about the Raydahs than Louisville.

It was fun while it lasted.

The only person who’s going to be more upset by this than Bobby Petrino…

… is Josh Harvey-Clemons’ grandpa.

Once more, in the land of second chances

Petrino’s gonna Petrino; Grantham’s gonna Grantham.

ESPN’s Max Olson reported Monday that Fields is visiting Bobby Petrino’s program this weekend and that the Cardinals are “in the lead” to land the 2014 preseason Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year.

Despite that honor, Fields didn’t play a snap of NCAA football this past season, having been “separated” from TCU after being connected with a domestic violence incident in July. Fields allegedly punched and threatened an ex-girlfriend, and after a planned transfer to Stephen F. Austin fell through, transferred to Trinity Valley Community Valley College in Athens, Texas.

Athens, Texas ain’t Athens, Georgia.  Louisville ain’t, either.
