Have you ever seen that horrible show he does on HBO? Ballers, I think? It's the worst TV show currently on air, and I watch the Bengals 16 times a year.

Miami can keep the Rock. 
I'm just gonna go find a cash machine.

Grantham got a nice healthy raise to stay at Florida.

Florida showed Todd Grantham the money to get him to spurn the Bengals

For the players, college football is amateur athletics. But for the coaches, amateur football can pay every bit as well as professional football.


In some cases, even better: Todd Grantham has decided to remain the defensive coordinator at Florida after the Gators made him a very competitive financial offer to turn down an offer to become the defensive coordinator of the Bengals.


The University of Florida announced that it extended Grantham’s contract through 2022 and increased his salary to $1.8 million a year, placing Grantham among the five highest-paid defensive coordinators in college football.

There’s no word on what the Bengals were offering him, but suffice to say Grantham will make a salary at Florida that’s very competitive with what NFL assistant coaches get paid.

It’s well-known in football circles that the highest-paid head coaches in college football make salaries comparable to what NFL coaches make. But all that money in college football is increasingly trickling down to the assistant coaches as well. The players aren’t paid, but the coaches are getting rich.

Dehner added to the discussion. Grantham's concerns also included lacking the personnel to be immediately successful in his preferred 3-4

Also..
[color=var(--body-5_-_color)]In Grantham's evaluation, according to a source, the Bengals defense had issues that would hamper his ability to be successful from the start in 2019. [/color]

[color=var(--body-5_-_color)]Specifically, the source said, Grantham was concerned about the Bengals' aging defensive line and lack of linebackers. Geno Atkins, the Bengals' lone Pro Bowl selection this season, is 30. Defensive end Carlos Dunlap turns 30 later this month.[/color]

It makes sense. We've had several bad drafts for years and our core is about 30 years old.

We're closer to a rebuild than people on the board are willing to admit.

Sometimes people don't like more experienced hires for fears that they'll have to worry about their job.

Shame on the Bengals for letting that happen if it is the case.
