Tulsa's Graham Hired As Pitt Football Coach

PITTSBURGH (AP) -- Todd Graham has agreed to leave Tulsa and become Pitt's third football coach in a month, a move designed to quickly bring stability to a program rocked by former coach Mike Haywood's arrest last month.

Tulsa's players held an 8 p.m. EST team meeting Monday at which Graham announced the move. Pitt made the hiring official shortly after that.

Graham had a 36-17 record in four seasons at Tulsa, including a 10-3 record this season. He made $1.3 million at Tulsa, about $300,000 more than Dave Wannstedt made per year as Pitt's coach from 2005 until this season. Graham is expected to be paid about $2 million per season at Pitt.
