  • Todd Graham fired as ASU head coach

The Sun Devils did finish the season winning three of their last four games, including a 42-30 victory over rival Arizona on Saturday, but school officials felt they weren't doing well enough. Following a one-year stint at Pitt in 2011 which ended with a 6-6 year, Graham resigned and took the head coaching job at ASU. His teams won 10 games in 2013 and in 2014 and he was 2-2 in bowl games. But the Sun Devils were 5-7 in 2016 and 6-7 in 2015.

A press conference is scheduled for 1:00 P.M. local time Sunday in which Anderson will give more detail about his decision.

Regardless of when the next coach is picked, Anderson's statement also noted that Graham and his staff will remain with the program through their bowl appearance. "From the moment he arrived in Tempe, Todd helped change the culture and emphasized the student in student-athlete here at Arizona State, elevating the program to unprecedented heights in the classroom and strong citizenship across the board".

"We are committed to turning Sun Devil Football into an elite program and competing nationally on a consistent basis", Anderson said.

Graham was 46-31 in six seasons that earned five bowl trips.

Graham brought a noteworthy track record to Arizona State back in 2012, predominantly his stint as the head coach of the Tulsa Golden Hurricane from 2007 to 2010.

According to the Arizona Republic, Anderson informed Graham in a meeting Sunday morning. Coaches then began informing players.

Graham has three seasons left on a contract that runs through the 2020 season and reportedly is owed at least $11 million.
