Grantham to get salary bump of $75k

ATHENS - - Georgia defensive coordinator Todd Grantham is receiving a raise to $825,000, up from $750,000.

This is according to an unsigned draft agreement provided by UGA through an Open Records Act Request. The athletics department is expected to release the contract agreement later on Friday.

Grantham's base salary will be $400,000, and he will receive an additional $425,000 as "supplemental income," including media appearances. Grantham also has incentives in his deal, similar to those for head coach Mark Richt, for team performance. For instance, Grantham will receive $150,000 if Georgia wins the BCS championship, all the way down to $25,000 for an appearance in a lower-tier bowl game.

The contract replaces Grantham's original three-year contract. He is now signed through January 31, 2015.

Grantham just completed his second season at Georgia. The Bulldogs finished last season ranked fourth nationally in total defense, and Grantham's unit was a major reason the team won 10 games and the SEC East Division title.
