Todd Graham agreed Monday to leave Tulsa and become Pittsburgh'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. Graham told his Tulsa players of the move at a meeting Monday night, and Pittsburgh 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 that included a 28-27 upset win at Notre Dame — where Pittsburgh lost under coach Dave Wannstedt . Wannstedt was forced to resign last month following a disappointing 7-5 regular season and repeated failures to win an outright Big East Conference title.
