UK offensive coordinator Eddie Gran was offered the same position with the Bulldogs “with a salary of at least $1.1 million” which was about $300k more than what his salary is in Lexington.
Despite the interest of the defending division champions, it appears Kirby Smart will have to keep looking for a new OC as Gran tweeted he was “all in” with his current program.
Gran is highly regarded around the Southeast as a recruiter and staying put makes plenty of sense after the Wildcats capped off a 10-3 campaign that saw the team wind up No. 12 in the final polls.
Prior to his three-year stint in Lexington, Gran served as offensive coordinator for three seasons at Cincinnati and was an assistant at Florida State, Tennessee, Auburn and several others over the past three decades.
