Todd Graham Notifies Pitt Players Of Departure To Arizona State Via Text Message

The Trib reports that (now-former, I guess) Pitt head football coach Todd Graham let the Panthers know of his departure to Arizona State by sending a text message.

Pitt’s players were informed in a statement from Graham that was sent via text by assistant athletic director/football operations Blair Philbrick.

“I have resigned my position at Pitt in the best interest of my family to pursue the head coaching position at Arizona State,” Graham said. “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.”

Classy! I’ve always heard text-message breakups are a good idea. Although I suppose, given the circumstances, Graham’s choice of medium makes sense – it wasn’t like he and Pitt were married or anything. I mean, they hadn’t even been together a year!
