This is a stroke of luck for Pitt. They get another do-over and the timing is good.

Graham wasn't completely terrible, but I don't think he was the man to take Pitt where it wants to go.

Smizik likes Iowa State coach Paul Rhodes for the job.

Why do they even go to the formality of having these coaches sign contracts. They aren't worth the paper they are printed on. :? :? :? :? :?

Yes, but that can be said for college football in the Northeast generally.

College football everywhere to be honest. The sport is even more messed up then MLB and that's saying a lot.

They should call them "Agreements" rather than contracts. They are non-binding on both sides.

I'm surprised at the vitriol I'm hearing from local media and fans over this. The guy was offered a job he liked better so he took it. What's so bad about that?

Besides, if you've been watching and listening to this guy, you should be glad to see him go. He came across as more of a snake oil salesman than someone that you really wanted to lead your program.

It might hurt in the short term but be better in the long term.
