Pittsburgh coach Todd Graham has agreed to become Arizona State's next coach, according to multiple reports.
Yahoo Sports first reported that Graham, who went 6-6 in a single season with Pittsburgh, agreed to leave the Panthers to head to Tempe to join the Sun Devils.
Graham allegedly texted Blair Philbrick, his assistant athletic director of football operations, about his decision to leave Pittsburgh and asked Philbrick to send it out to the entire football team.
The message read:
I have resigned my position at Pitt in the best interest of my family to pursue the head coaching position at Arizona State, Graham said. Coaching there has always been a dream of ours and we have family there. The timing of the circumstances have prohibited from telling you this directly. I now am on my way to Tempe to continue those discussions. God Bless. Coach Graham.
Arizona State will be Graham's third job in the last 12 months. He joined Pittsburgh on Jan. 10 after spending four successful seasons with Tulsa. Graham replaced Mike Haywood, who was fired after only 16 days on the job after being charged with domestic violence.
This also isn't the first time he has left a school after only one season -- he left Rice for Tulsa after only a year.
Pittsburgh will now be looking for its fourth coach in a little more than a year. It fired Dave Wannstedt in 2010, hired then fired Haywood, then hired Graham.
