After a great season for the Kentucky football team, Wildcats offensive coordinator Eddie Gran has become a popular coaching candidate. In the wake of recent rumors that the Georgia Bulldogs were looking to snatch him from Kentucky, Gran has responded.
On Thursday, Gran took to his Twitter account and doubled-down with Kentucky, stating he is “All in.”
I’m all in,
#BBN! Let’s do this !
In his third year under head coach Mark Stoops, Gran designed an offense that scored 27 or more points in eight games this season.

The Wildcats finished the 2018 season with 10 wins – their best mark since 1977 – and won the Citrus Bowl in a 27-24 thriller over Penn State.
Running back Benny Snell Jr. had a historic year in Gran’s offense, breaking the school’s all-time rushing record previously held by Sonny Collins. Snell finished his junior season with 1,449 rushing yards and 16 touchdowns.
Kentucky was ranked No. 12 by the AP in the post-season polls.
