Georgia: The Atlanta Journal Constitution is reporting that defensive coordinator Todd Grantham would owe UGA $1 million if he leaves for any other job within the next year other than a D1 or NFL head coaching job.

According to the article, "The memorandum, from which a formal contract will be drafted, stipulates that Grantham would owe Georgia liquidated damages equal to 75 percent of the guaranteed payments remaining on the contract if he resigns for any other reason before Feb. 1, 2011. The contract calls for Grantham to receive a salary of $750,000 per year for three years -- a total of $2.25 million - through Jan. 31, 2013. So if he were to resign in, say, January 2011 with two years left on the contract, he'd owe UGA 75 percent of the approximately $1.5 million left on the contract -- or approximately $1.125 million."
