Louisville defensive coordinator Todd Grantham will be staying put despite receiving NFL interest, according to a report by ESPN’s Brett McMurphy that was later confirmed by others.
Grantham, 48, was reportedly offered a two-year deal by the Oakland Raiders to become their defensive coordinator. The Cardinals’ coordinator spent nearly a decade coaching in the NFL before becoming Georgia’s defensive coordinator. He’s been at Louisville for one season.
Louisville is where Grantham will remain.

Todd Grantham: “My family loves it in Louisville, and I think we are establishing something special here with Bobby Petrino and our staff.”

Louisville boasted one of the country’s best defenses in 2014, allowing a mere 21.8 points per game, a mark that ranked No. 24 in the country. Grantham made a reported $975K at Louisville in 2014.
