Reports: Gran, Borges up for jobs

Auburn running backs coach Eddie Gran is interviewing today for the South Alabama head coaching job, according to multiple reports.
Also, former offensive coordinator Al Borges is up for the same job at Ole Miss, according to the Northwest Mississippi Daily Journal.
South Alabama will begin its football program in 2009 and move into Divsion I Football Bowl Subdivision in 2013.
