ASU Hires Pitt's Todd Graham As Head Coach: Your Reaction?

New, 27 comments

Arizona State football finally has a new head coach, as they have hired Pitt's Todd Graham.

Graham spent just one season at Pitt, going 6-6. However, prior to coaching the Panthers, Graham spent four highly successful seasons at Tulsa, including three 10-win seasons. Overall, he has a 49-29 record as a head coach at Rice, Tulsa and Pitt.

His recruiting ties to the Texas area are a very favorable trait, and he complied the 18th ranked recruiting class in the nation at Pitt. How many, if any, of those players who change their commitment to ASU remains to be seen. No word has yet been given on what assistants he plans to bring to Tempe.

Concern must be given to his nomadic resume. ASU will mark his fourth job over the last six seasons. Graham has stated his desire to coach here, so ASU must hope that it is the case.
