Todd Graham to ASU, Pitt Player Responds on Twitter

Pitt coach accepts job at Arizona State

Todd Graham, one and done at Pittsburgh.

Pittsburgh will look for their fourth head coach in a year after learning that Todd Graham is already packing his bags for Tempe. Personally, I can’t blame him. Arizona or Pittsburgh? C’mon, where would you rather live if you had the options?

Graham also enters a program that has rebranded their image with a new logo and uniforms, and the Pac 12 is quickly becoming an exciting conference with new coaching hires. From his perspective, this seems like a solid decision, although recruiting will be a little more difficult now with four different jobs in the last six seasons (although all seem to be upgrades, so that’s a good thing) considering the conference now has Mike Leach and Rich Rodriguez in addition to Chip Kelly and Lane Kiffin, just to name a few.

But the reaction from western Pennsylvania, as expected, has been somewhat negative. Check out this Storify collection on Big East Coast Bias.

Take, for instance, Pittsburgh’s Adam Lazenga, who took to the tweets (also shown in the above Storify link)…

 

How about this tweet from Brandon Lindsey…

Despite your abundant media fame (hey, check out, someone gave me credentials for a minor bowl game!! lulz!), judging by the zero comments, it appears no one really cares about this blog. From Pittsburgh, I look forward to watching your star continue to rise.

Todd Graham has to leave town before he is thrown out. He is a snake oil salesman of the highest order. Look back at his exit after one season from Rice University. No class.
