PITTSBURGH (KDKA-TV) — New Pitt football coach Todd Graham hasn’t officially been introduced yet but he’s already hard at work trying to complete his coaching staff.

The university is giving him $2 million to spend on assistants, so coming up with talented people shouldn’t be an issue.

Considering National Letter of Intent Day is approaching quickly (Feb. 2), Graham is likely to announce this quickly so they can start hitting the recruiting trail.

Here are some people Graham is reportedly likely to bring with him to Pitt. These are guys he’s worked with at both Tulsa and West Virginia.

  • Keith Patterson: His co-defensive coordinator at Tulsa (also coached the DL)
  • Paul Randolph: His co-defensive coordinator at Tulsa (also coached the DL)
  • Spencer Leftwich: His offensive line coach at Tulsa
  • Tony Gibson: Was assistant head coach, defensive backs and special teams coach this past season with Michigan
  • Tony Dews: Was WR coach at Michigan
  • If Graham hires these coaches, he would still have 4 spots left to fill (offensive coordinator, running back coach, tight ends coach and one more defensive assistant).

    KDKA-TV Sports will be at today’s press conference and will have the latest on KDKA-TV Sports at 5 and 6.
