ASU Coaching News: Pitt's Todd Graham Reportedly Leaving For Arizona State

The search for a new head football coach of the Arizona State Sun Devils has been a tumultuous whirlwind of dizzying information over the past few weeks, and now out of the fray comes another possibly candidate as multiple reports on Twitter have Pittsburgh's Todd Graham leaving the program to become the new head coach down in Tempe.

SB Nation's own Brad Denny on Twiiter:

Wow, @chris_gates, reporter for 93.7 in Pittsburgh saying Todd Graham is #ASU's pick. Pitt player reaction and all.

The reports are still coming in from all over the country, but many of Pitt's own players are reacting on Twitter as if Graham has already packed his bags and said his goodbyes.

So birmingham will be the EXACT same as last year. This is crazy

Graham began his collegiate coaching career as the linebackers coach for Rich Rodriguez at West Virginia back in 2001, becoming defensive co-coordinator the following season, and just defensive coordinator in 2003. After a stint at Rice in 2006 he left for Tulsa, where he was the head coach until Jan. of 2011 when he took the position at Pitt, which he will now leave after only a single year on the job. He also had a short stint with the Arizona Cardinals as a player as well. 

Graham prefers to run a spread-type offense, while his defense is similar to that of the three-man stack employed by West Virginia. Should bring a lot of excitement to the field down in Tempe, and hopefully a lot of success as well.
