FSU RB coach Eddie Gran expected to leave

Bob Donnan-US PRESSWIRE

Florida St. Seminoles running backs coach Eddie Gran is expected to leave the Seminoles' coaching staff. The coach was known as a great recruiter in the South Florida area for the Seminoles.

Florida State Seminoles running backs coach Eddie Gran appears to be close to leaving the Seminoles for another coaching position somewhere else, according to Corey Clark on Tallahassee.com. Gran has been interviewed for the head coach job at Arkansas State and is also a candidate to be a part of Tommy Tuberville's staff with the Cincinnati Bearcats. Gran has previously worked with Tuberville with the Mississippi Rebels and the Auburn Tigers.

The word that Gran was leaving the Seminoles broke on social networking sites. John Franklin, a Seminoles commitment from South Florida had this to say about his pending departure:

"Just got off the phone with Coach Gran. It sucks that he's leaving but when God opens up doors in your life you gotta take advantage of it."

Gran would be the third member of the 2012 Seminoles coaching staff to leave after defensive coordinator Mark Stoops and defensive ends coach D.J. Eliot, who took over as head coach and defensive coordinator respectively for the Kentucky Wildcats.

Gran has helped the Seminoles put together three straight top-10 recruiting classes, including last year's top-ranked class. He has been regarded as a great recruiter even in his days from back in the Southeastern Conference. As of right now, it is unknown how his departure will affect this year's class.
