Florida defensive coordinator Todd Grantham is the leading candidate to land the defensive coordinator job with the Cincinnati Bengals, according to multiple sources. Per ESPN:
The Athletic first reported that the Bengals had formally requested permission to interview Grantham and that he was at the top of first-year Bengals head coach Zac Taylor's list.
Grantham, 52, has been with Dan Mullen the past two seasons, 2018 at Florida and 2017 at Mississippi State. His Florida defense last season ranked first in the SEC in turnovers forced (26). In Grantham's only season at Florida, the Gators finished 20th nationally in scoring defense, an improvement from 69th the year before.
