As you guys may know, I do a feature during the Basketball Tournament called Meet the Opponents. The idea popped into my head today to do one for our opponents and visitors to Patterson Stadium this weekend, The Kennesaw State Owls. Many reasons came to mind. A lot of us don’t know much about them. They are not a huge name. Most importantly, this is my story and I will write about whatever I want. Ok, the last reason had zero affect on why, but it’s my story and I can just make up a reason if I want. On a serious note, I hope you enjoy the tidbits and facts also known as Meet The Opponents.
LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Widely regarded as one of the best defensive coordinators in the country, Todd Grantham was tabbed by University of Louisville head football coach Bobby Petrino to become the school’s defensive coordinator and safeties coach on Thursday.
Todd comes to Louisville after four seasons as Georgia’s defensive coordinator, including two seasons as the associate head coach. During his time with Georgia, the Bulldogs advanced to four-consecutive bowl games and compiled a 36-18-1 record with Grantham at the helm of the defense.
“To get a coach like Todd Grantham on our staff says a lot about our program,” Petrino said. “I’ve had the opportunity to compete against Todd’s defenses over the years and have been very impressed with his scheme and how hard his players compete. Todd will be a great addition to lead our defense.”
