ATHENS, Ga. -- After Georgia’s national signing day press conference this afternoon, defensive coordinator Todd Grantham addressed in general terms the published reports that he is a candidate for multiple NFL job openings.

Grantham’s message: He hadn’t spoken to Bulldogs coach Mark Richt or athletic director Greg McGarity about specific job openings, as required by terms in his contract, because there was nothing to discuss. Not yet, anyway.

“If I feel like I need to discuss something, I have a great relationship with Coach Richt and Greg and I would definitely do that from that standpoint,” Grantham said. “For me, the most important thing is doing a great job at Georgia because I like my job here. At the same time, as you move forward, if opportunities came up, I don’t think it’s fair to comment on every particular one because then all I’d be doing is talking about the rumors and innuendos and those kind of things, and then I couldn’t do my job.”
