Former Pitt coach Todd Graham Hired at Hawaii

Former Pitt coach Todd Graham Hired at Hawaii

Hawaii has hired former Pitt coach Todd Graham to be its next head coach, the school announced late on Tuesday.

Graham, 55, was last a head coach at Arizona State from 2012-17. That’s the job that Graham took upon leaving Pitt after just one season. The Mesquite, Texas native also coached at Tulsa and Rice.

Graham has a 95-56 overall record as a head coach. He was 46-32 at Arizona State before being fired in 2017. ASU went on to hire former NFL coach Herm Edwards. He had been out of coaching since his time at ASU.


In his one season at Pitt, Graham went 6-6 in 2011, promising a fast-tempo offense. But his quick departure, after the abortive hiring of Mike Haywood before him, left Pitt with a huge amount of turmoil at head coach. He was replaced by Paul Chryst for the 2012 season.

At Hawaii, Graham will inherit a Rainbow Warriors squad that is coming off a 10-5 season with a win over BYU in the Aloha Bowl after falling to Boise State in the Mountain West Conference Championship Game.

Former Hawaii head coach Nick Rolovich took the job at Washington State that was vacated when Mike Leach was hired by Mississippi State.
