It seems as if it may finally be time to put all of the jokes to rest for a little bit about Todd Graham switching jobs at a rapid rate, as reportedly Arizona State will be keeping him around for an extended period of time.
After a 2-0 start to 2013, the school and the coach have agreed to an extension through 2018.
ASU, Todd Graham agree to contract extension through June 30, 2018. Pending ABOR approval. Details: http://t.co/3CktFRYWGZ

Graham took over the Sun Devils prior to the 2012 season, after spending one year as head coach of the Pitt Panthers. The way Graham left for the job in the desert came under heavy scrutiny, especially from the Panthers’ faithful. Graham basically sent text messages to all of his players as he was on the plane to Arizona.
As stated above by Doug Haller of AZCentral.com (where you can also find full details of the extension as well), the extension still needs to be approved by the Board of Regents at the school–which it’s expected to be next week.
