Todd Graham has added four new coaches to his new coaching staff at Arizona State.

As expected, co-offensive coordinator Mike Norvell will join Graham’s staff following his resignation at Pitt, according to an official school text message release. Subsequent press releases announced that Chris Ball, formerly of Washington State, will come in as Co-Defensive Coordinator and safeties coach; Chris Thomsen  who spent the past seven seasons as head coach of  DII program Abilene Christian, has been named running backs coach; Bob Connelly, who was the offensive line coach at UTEP, will take the same position with the Sun Devils.

It’s not known if any other Pitt coaches will follow Graham to Arizona State following the BBVA Compass Bowl.

    Looks like the U of Arizona got the b etter hire in RichRod. This bumpkin has never stayed anyplace to do anything.

    In other news:

    -Arizona has announed a sponsorship deal with Extended Stay America so Flim Flam Man Graham won’t have to buy a house…he can just rent for a year.

    -A national contest has been announced to determine which players in Graham’s opening speech next year will replace Dan Mario/Danny White, Terrell Suggs/Mike Ditka, etc.

    In Pittsburgh people used to love Pitt first and then whoever was playing Penn State that week. Now that honor goes to Arizona. Some enterprising company ought to rename the Arizona-Arizona State game the Immaculate Deception Bowl for Richrod and Fraud Graham.

    Can’t believe how much heat this guy is taking for moving his family to a place they would rather be. The whole thing reminds me of a Sienfield episode where George was about to get dumped so he breaks up with her first to preserve “hand” in the relationship. I am thinking that Pitt fans would rather complain about having a bad coach and keep him.. WAIT, WHAT, YOU ARE LEAVING US? WE WERE GOING TO LEAVE YOU!!! Too funny..

    Dear CFT, thank you for answering the question, if a piece of dirty, worthless trash makes an inconsequential decision at a place where only garbage collects and mingles, will anyone actually write about it.
