Todd Grantham reportedly a 'viable candidate' for Alabama DC role if top option falls through
Todd Grantham spent the 2022 season as an analyst on Alabama’s coaching staff after getting fired as Florida’s defensive coordinator in 2021.
Now he could be in line to get an even more prestigious role depending on a developing situation in Tuscaloosa.
Per Alabama insider Tony Tsoukalas, Grantham is a “viable candidate” for the Alabama defensive coordinator job if the Tide can’t hire Jeremy Pruitt to run the defense:

Grantham has also served as the defensive coordinator at Georgia and Mississippi State in the SEC, in addition to Florida.
Will the Tide be allowed to hire Pruitt? Will someone else take the job? Or will Nick Saban turn the defense over to Grantham for the 2023 season? Big questions face Alabama as this offseason continues.
