ATLANTA (AP) - Todd Grantham is leaving Georgia to become Bobby Petrino's defensive coordinator at Louisville.

Georgia coach Mark Richt confirmed Sunday night that Grantham had accepted an offer from the Cardinals. Grantham was Georgia's defensive coordinator for four years.

Grantham was entering the final year of a three-year contract worth $850,000 per year. ESPN reported Grantham will earn $1 million per year at Louisville.

Grantham produced mixed results at Georgia. His 2012 defense was perceived as underachieving, and Georgia ranked eighth in the Southeastern Conference in total defense and 78th in the nation in scoring defense in 2013, when the Bulldogs finished 8-5.

Richt says Georgia already has received interest from ''some very, very outstanding coaches'' as he begins his search for a new defensive coordinator.
