Todd Graham has faced a good amount of criticism for his brief stint in Pittsburgh before jetting away to his "dream job" at Arizona State. In what was likely an attempt to display his commitment to the school, Graham joined the Sun Devils' student section for the season finale against Arizona.
The 10-20 Sun Devils were not fighting for an NCAA tournament bid, but got to play spoiler to the 21-10 Wildcats with an 87-80 victory. The television cameras caught Graham in the student section, and @bubbaprog caught the clip in all its high-octane goodness.
Former Tennessee head coach Bruce Pearl is probably wondering why Graham is wearing a shirt at all, especially two. [.GIF via Gifulmination.com]
Arizona State starts spring practice March 13, with the spring game scheduled for April 21. For the full list of Spring Practice dates and previews, check out our Spring Practice Home.

According to Fox 23 out of Tulsa, the next Pittsburgh football coach will be Todd Graham of Tulsa. Fox 23 reports that while Graham's hiring has yet to be announced, it is a "done deal" and he will depart for Pittsburgh later this evening.
The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette confirms this report, reporting that Graham and Pitt have come to terms on a deal and will be announcing the hiring tomorrow. It's likely that the announcement may come later today, considering the pressure such reports put on athletic officials who are being asked constantly for confirmation, but Pitt's current plan is to take care of the formalities on Tuesday.
At any rate, this report likely dismays Panther fans who had been holding out hope for Tom Bradley , the longtime Penn State assistant who was the early favorite for the job. Bradley did interview with Pitt, but obviously those talks stalled at some point. It's also entirely possible that Pitt AD Steve Pederson just plain liked Graham better as a candidate (rather than, say, getting hung up on money with Bradley), but those specifics will have to come from Pederson.
Bradley is also interviewing with Connecticut this week, as the Huskies look to replace Randy Edsall after his move to Maryland a week ago.
