Grantham has extensive experience coaching defensive football, largely at the collegiate level, however, he did spend 10 seasons coaching NFL ball as well.

He's been an associate head coach and defensive coordinator at two SEC schools, Georgia and Mississippi State and he most recently spent the last four seasons as defensive coordinator for the Florida Gators.

Grantham was fired in Gainesville in November with four games remaining on the Gators schedule after giving up 40 points to South Carolina.

Grantham joins an analyst room that includes former Tennessee head coach Derek Dooley and former LSU quarterback Zach Mettenberger as new members of the Alabama staff.

He becomes the latest coach with extensive experience to join the Alabama program in lesser roles in order to learn Nick Saban's process. Head coaches Steve Sarkisian, Mike Locksley and Mel Tucker all spent time as analysts under Saban and used that experience to land larger jobs in the future.
