Georgia Interested In Cowboys' D-Line Coach?



    According to reports, the University of Georgia Bulldogs are looking at Dallas Cowboys defensive line coach Todd Grantham as a possible replacement for departed defensive coordinator Willie Martinez.

    Grantham had served as defensive coordinator in Cleveland for three seasons before being fired and coming to Dallas as the defensive line coach, a position he's held for most of his pro and college coaching career.

    Since coming to the NFL in the 1999 season, Grantham has served as defensive line coach for Indianapolis (1999-2001), Houston (2002-2004) and of course Dallas (2008-present), with his only service as a defensive coordinator coming under Romeo Crennel's Browns (2005-2007).

    Reportedly, Grantham is on the "short-list," so to speak, of Georgia's head coach Mark Richt to take over the Bulldogs' defense, and has, in fact, already been approached by school representatives.

    There are no rules prohibiting colleges from contacting NFL coaches during the season.
