PITTSBURGH (KDKA-TV) — It sounds like Pitt may just have a new head football coach.

While a spokesperson for the University of Pittsburgh would not confirm the report late this afternoon, Tulsa’s NewsChannel 8 is now reporting that Tulsa Golden Hurricane head coach Todd Graham has accepted the Panthers head coaching job.

Pitt was highly interested in Graham prior to hiring former coach Michael Haywood.

Sources have said that Pitt offered Graham the job; but that he had to accept it by tonight.

Again, the University of Pittsburgh has not released a statement confirming this report.
