ASU Coaching Search: Todd Graham Leaves Pittsburgh For Arizona State, According To Reports

According to an explosion of reports on Twitter at roughly 12:20 PM Eastern time, Pittsburgh head coach Todd Graham has left the Panthers for the vacant ASU coaching position.

Formerly a linebackers coach under new Arizona coach Rich Rodriguez while at West Virginia, Graham has head coaching experience at Rice, Tulsa and Pitt. In 5 years, he has coached at three schools, with ASU being the fourth.

Where are we hearing this? Who better to tell the story than local Pittsburgh media?

Saddler, Sunseri, Lindsey, Shanahan, Taglianetti all in disbelief on Twitter right now. All signs point to Todd Graham is gone. #Pitt

Andrew Taglianetti is a defensive back for the Panthers.

and finally, Pat Forde confirms it.

There is a lot more out there, but enough of the Twittersphere.

Presuming that this is accurate, this is a resolution of an epic drama. Graham went 6-6 in his first season in the Big East, while putting together a 36-17 record at Rice and Tulsa. He is young (47) and could be around for a while if we can put together a good run.

I'm not sure what else to say at this point. There will be a lot more coming in the near future.
