Pitt Live - Pitt’s players were informed in a statement from Graham that was sent via text by assistant athletic director/football operations Blair Philbrick.

“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.”


3 coaches in one calendar year for the Pitt Panthers.  Not a good look.   Having your AD forward a text message around to a team to let them know that not only are you quitting but you’re literally boarding a plane as we speak to go sip pina coladas on the beach with your new team?   Even worse look.   Got to feel bad for the players especially the seniors.  Thank God they booted Wannstedt and his righteous stache out the door huh.  That dude was such a loser.  Always concerned with dumb shit like being committed and shit.  But hey 6-6 then jetting for a better job is cool too.
