Did you ever wonder why offensive coordinator Edd Gran left Cincinnati, where he had one of the nation’s most productive offenses and all kinds of job security, to come to Kentucky?
The Kentucky offense has struggled. Coach Mark Stoops has yet to have a winning season. The Southeastern Conference has some of the nation’s best teams.
So I asked Gran why he left and if the move was a career gamble for him.
“It doesn’t matter where you are at in this profession. It was the right time to be with a great man in Mark Stoops,” Gran said.
“I think what they have done the last four years has been unbelievable. I am coming in at a great time. They are hungry. They have had some unfortunate situations. They know they were close to winning a lot more games.
“Whatever it takes to get to the next step is what we are going to try and do. But to me, it is not a gamble. To me, it is a great opportunity.”
