Gran takes job at Florida State

Tennessee running backs coach and special teams coordinator Eddie Gran has agreed to take a position on Jimbo Fisher’s staff at Florida State, multiple sources have confirmed. This is the second departure on Tennessee’s staff. Receivers coach Frank Wilson left the Vols on Saturday to take a job on the LSU staff as running backs coach and recruiting coordinator.

More lucrative contracts from other schools have been the issue for Lane Kiffin in keeping his staff intact, although Tennessee has tried to counter the offers. The Seminoles are prepared to pay Gran $300,000-plus. Gran made $190,000 last year at Tennessee and has been one of the Vols' most valuable recruiters in the state of Florida.
