Arizona State's Todd Graham Appears To Be On The Hot Seat

The Sun Devils' head coach might need to win big this season.

Arizona State has done something contract-related to its head coach that it's never done before.

For the first time since hiring Todd Graham, the Sun Devils have not extended his contract by one season, which it's done annually prior to this year.

Graham still has four years left on his deal, but Arizona State is coming off two losing seasons and the contract move seems to be an indication that more is needed.


ASU is coming off two consecutive losing seasons going into Graham's sixth season. He is under contract through June 30, 2021 – a period covering the 2017-2020 seasons – per terms of an amended contract approved last year by the Arizona Board of Regents.

Graham received one-year contract extensions in September 2013, June 2014, September 2015 and June 2016, keeping his contract length at its original five years. Now, he will have four years left on his contract going into this season and three after the 2017 season.

Graham is 39-26 as Arizona State's head coach. He's been the Sun Devils' man since 2012.
