It’s official: Eddie Gran is staying with Kentucky Football!

It has been a wild day for all of Kentucky sports as earlier in the day, rumors leaked that Eddie Gran was being considered for the vacant Georgia OC job.

Over the past couple of seasons a lot of fans have questioned Eddie Gran’s methods. People have felt like the under-utilization of guys like CJ Conrad or Lynn Bowden along with the offensive ranking being in the 100’s that Gran wasn’t doing the best job. Well, when a team like Georgia calls and inquires about your services, you’re doing something right.

Yes, Gran has had some questionable play calling, but you can’t deny the impact he’s had during his first couple years at Kentucky. He helped Benny Snell become the all-time rushing leader in Kentucky Football history and was a big part in getting this team to 10+ wins.

Beyond that, it really seems like this coaching staff has become one unit. While Georgia is a phenomenal job by all means, Kentucky is building something special, and in order to do that you need coaches to be bought in, and that’s exactly what Eddie Gran is!

Here are some of the tweets from media, players and coaches before and after Eddie Gran turned down the Georgia job:

Yahtzee!
