Remember when there was all that confusion about whether or not Kentucky offensive coordinator Eddie Gran was offered the same position at UGA?
Quick recap: DawgNation’s Chip Towers didn’t believe Gran was offered the job, while DawgNation’s Mike Griffith reported that Gran was approached not as a coordinator but as a position coach. Matt Jones of Kentucky Sports Radio, who broke the news of Georgia’s flirtation, tweeted: “If Georgia people say tonight Gran wasn’t offered, they’re wrong. He was.”
The back-and-forth banter between UGA and Kentucky reporters and fans was quite entertaining to observe. Ultimately, the Bulldogs promoted assistant James Coley to the vacant position.
On Tuesday, Gran double-downed to reporters after he was asked about how serious the discussions he had with Georgia over its offensive coordinator position:
“Serious in the point that they offered the job,” Gran claimed, per Kentucky.com’s Ben Roberts.
This, also from Roberts: A few days after the reports of the Georgia job offer, Gran agreed to a new contract that will pay him an average of $900,000 over the next three seasons at Kentucky.
