http://rivals.yahoo.com/ncaa/football/news?slug=pf-forde_graham_quits_pitt_asu_121511 My thoughts: ASU made a good hire when they hired June Jones. At least they were going to score points. Then the alums went nuts and they called it off (WTFWT?) Botch #1. We can argue if the botch was the hiring of Jones in the first place or the non-hiring of Jones - but either way........BOTCHED! It's debatable what kind of a "football guy" Graham is. Maybe he's a sharp guy. Let's give him the benefit of the doubt. He brings to ASU, pretty much no contacts in the West for recruiting purposes. He brings to ASU, pretty much none of his staff from Pitt, as they already jumped that ship to join RichRod at Arizona. He brings to ASU, a reputation that he will jump at the first better offer. He has no ties to ASU. So......ASU is betting that he is smarter than the rest. That he can get it done anywhere, no matter who he hires as assistants. Anyone else think he left Pitt because his staff was fleeing? Dews, Simpson, and McGee announced under RichRod btw. It's amazing to me that AD's continue to hire coaches without really asking the tough questions. Who will your staff include? What have you REALLY done. Have you done that anywhere over a period of time where the program built long-term sustainable results? I'm a Zonie and have lots of friends down there. They are coming unglued at the ridiculousness of this hire. Worst hire of the year.
