The Steelers couldn’t stand Todd Graham either

Great stuff from Ed Bouchette today on the Steelers and former Pitt coach Todd Graham:

The Steelers practically threw a party when they heard that Pitt coach Todd Graham quit. That goes from the top to the bottom, from those who work in the offices to the coaches and every-day workers who came into contact with Graham and his staff in the building.

They described Graham as an arrogant man who had no use for anything the Steelers might have offered, and they say he resented having to share the building and the indoor practice field at the UPMC complex with them.

While the Steelers and Panthers had always shared the same cafeteria at the UPMC complex, Bouchette said that Graham put a stop to that, creating a new cafeteria for Pitt on the other side of the building. Graham worked extra hard to not take advantage of Pitt’s great setup with the Steelers, who are happy to help the local college team in any way they can.
