Florida's defensive coordinator, Todd Grantham, has reportedly decided on the job with the Cincinnati Bengals. The Gators' assistant coach is reportedly staying put.

Grantham, 52, reportedly emerged as the favorite for the Cincinnati Bengals' defensive coordinator position. The job was reportedly his if he wanted it.

Apparently, he doesn't want it.

Pick Sticcs is reporting that Grantham has decided to pass on the job and stay with the Gators.

Graham Hall, a Florida insider for the Gainesville Sun, is confirming the report. Grantham will be staying at Florida.

"Can confirm Harrison's report at picksticcs.com: #Gators DC Todd Grantham no longer considering #Bengals offer at this time, plans to stay at UF per source," he reports.

Grantham, a former NFL assistant coach, has been with the Florida program since 2017. He previously coached at Louisville and Georgia. Grantham also spent time in the NFL with the Dallas Cowboys, Cleveland Browns, Houston Texans and Indianapolis Colts.

News of Grantham's decision to stay put at Florida has yet to be officially confirmed by the Gators. Stay tuned.
