Grantham Says No Thanks to Saints

ATHENS - Todd Grantham met with the New Orleans Saints on Thursday, but by Friday night he'd turned them down.

In a statement released by Georgia, Todd Grantham said he was no longer interested in pursuing the position he'd interviewed for on Thursday.

"I want to thank Sean Payton and the New Orleans Saints organization for the opportunity to interview and get to know them. They are a first class organization in every respect," Grantham said in the statement."

"As I said Wednesday, Georgia is a great place, my family loves it here, and I do as well. This is where our heart is and today I have withdrawn my name from consideration for the position with the Saints. I¹m excited to start preparations for another season and along with the rest of our defensive staff look forward to coaching some really good returning players as well as developing some very talented newcomers."
