Default Todd Graham leaves Rice for Tulsa

He's leaving Rice after one year to become the head coach at Tulsa after Steve Kragthorpe left for Louisville. What a great season for Rice and now the head coach leaves after one season. What a bummer. I wonder if Major Applewhite will get the HC job now.

extensions for coaches in college football are a joke. i wonder if it was a yearning to return to Tulsa or a money issue.

Default Re: Todd Graham leaves Rice for Tulsa

I do not think this was the right thing to do. Sometimes there's a job out there that you very much want but the timing ends up being wrong. To leave Rice at this point (particularly if the reports of his signing an extension are true) is IMO wrong.

Cool Re: Todd Graham leaves Rice for Tulsa

Hopefully colleges will start using non-compete clauses and stop acting so desperate to get coaches.

In defense of Saban "well, if you want him that bad, you won't put it in his contract."

Whatever. All over college and pro sports, greedy @%$#.

It's a sad state of affairs when now a days, coaches find the need to jump while their value is high, or that they SHOULD be in that kind of predicament.

No loyalty these days.. From either the schools/teams or the coaches themselves.

$1.1 million a year for EIGHT (8) years...

No way Rice would match that money. Thats way more than they paid Rick Smalley, who won a Nobel Prize while at Rice.

Don't allow them to transfer, either. Without wasting a year of eligibility.

OMG that is like 10 times as relevant. really great comment.

coaches who bail on a signed contract should be forced to hold a clipboard only their first year.

Except Tulsa goes to a bowl gme about every 5 years instead of every 60 years. Yeah, but other then that the are very much the same...no wait no is a state school while the other is an Ivy league caliber university.

But I still think it was a crap move by Graham, and hope he fails next year.

In more ways than one. Major Applewhite, former Rice OC, has joined Saban at Alabama.

Good luck to Applewhite. His position hasn't been posted, but man is he moving up the chain. There is a big difference between Rice and Bama.
