"I have resigned my position at Pitt in the best interest of my family to pursue the head coaching position at Arizona State. 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."
This is the text message that Todd Graham sent to his director of football operations to forward to his players to inform him of his decision to leave Pittsburgh for Arizona State. The text was acquired and posted in the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review here.
