Pittsburgh coach Todd Graham is leaving the Steel City after one year to take the same position at ASU.
Pittsburgh coach Todd Graham will head west to become the new head coach of Arizona State, according to Yahoo! Sports' Pat Forde. Graham will replace fired ASU coach Dennis Erickson.
Graham was hired by Pittsburgh in January after the Panthers' previous choice to replace Dave Wannstedt, former Miami of Ohio coach Mike Haywood, was arrested on domestic violence charges just two weeks after being hired by Pitt. Prior to his one year in Pittsburgh, Graham had been Tulsa's head coach from 2006 to 2010, and Rice's head coach in 2005.
Graham went 6-6 with Pittsburgh in 2011, but led Tulsa to three 10-win seasons and has just one losing season in six years as an FBS head coach.
