    Georgia defensive coordinator Todd Grantham has withdrawn his name from consideration for the New Orleans Saints defensive coordinator position, Grantham said in a statement Friday night. On Thursday, the Saints interviewed Todd Grantham for the position of defensive coordinator.  Or in other words Grantham was told he wouldn’t get the job. Saints Coach Sean Payton interviewed Grantham for the open spot on his staff Thursday. “This is where our heart is and today I have withdrawn my name from consideration for the position with the Saints.  Payton said he would like to interview another candidate early next week, but the Saints could easily alter those plans if Ryan and the Saints reach a deal. I’m excited to start preparations for another season and along with the rest of our defensive staff look forward to coaching some really good returning players as well as developing some very talented newcomers.”
