(Photo by Joe Robbins/Getty Images)Georgia football is coming close to filling the major holes on its staff.The Bulldogs lost defensive coordinator Mel Tucker earlier this winter. He is the new head coach for the Colorado Buffaloes.Earlier today, Oakland Raiders’ defensive backs coach Derrick Ansley was named as a candidate. He spent years on staff at Alabama, Kentucky, and Tennessee.Two internal candidates—Dan Lanning and Glenn Schuman—are involved as well.The offensive coordinator situation has been more surprising. Tennessee made a big move in hiring away Dawgs’ OC Jim Chaney.Georgia may do the same to a third SEC East team. On Wednesday, SB Nation CFB insider Steven Godfrey reported that Kentucky’s Eddie Gran is “a name to watch” in the search.He may be the name to watch, as it turns out.According to a new report, Eddie Gran has been offered the Georgia football offensive coordinator job.Kentucky Sports Radio is reporting contract details and more on what Gran would be taking on:A source tells KSR that UK Offensive Coordinator Eddie Gran was offered the position of Offensive Coordinator at Georgia under Kirby Smart in the last 24 hours. Smart has offered Gran total control of the Offense and a salary of at least $1.1 million.According to USA Today, Gran made over $850,000 in base pay this season, with the chance at over $141,000 in bonuses. The $1.1 million, and the chance to coach a national title-caliber team, has to be an enticing opportunity for Gran.Chaney made $950,000, with a max bonus of $234,000, according to USA Today.[Kentucky Sports Radio]last_img read more
