Eddie Gran has certainly has a wild ride as Kentucky offensive coordinator. While Wildcat fans were calling for his head following a rough loss early in the season, he righted the ship and led Kentucky to one of the best seasons in the history of the program.
Though Georgia offered him the offensive coordinator position left vacant by Jim Chaney, Gran turned them down and decided to return to Lexington.

“[Georgia was] serious in the point that they offered the job,” Gran said. “It came down to: I love this community. I love this administration...and I’ve become a part of this community, and I love it. I think we’re doing some things that are special."
Kentucky fans are banking on the idea that Gran has the ability to both replace leading rusher Benny Snell, who is off to the NFL, and improve quarterback Terry Wilson as a passer.

Before 2018, Gran was not thought of as an offensive savant, leading some to believe that 2018 was a fluke. Gran is hoping to prove those doubters wrong with another strong campaign.
