New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton will interview Georgia defensive coordinator Todd Grantham on Thursday, the New Orleans Times-Picayune reported Tuesday night.

Payton is scheduled to interview former Dallas Cowboys defensive coordinator Rob Ryan on Friday. The Times-Picayune cited a league source regarding each interview, but ESPN reported Tuesday night that the Saints were close to hiring Ryan.

Grantham is scheduled to take part in Georgia's signing day news conference today at 2 p.m. in Athens.
