Quotes from football head coach Todd Graham on the 2013 Signing Class
Bo Graham enters his first season as assistant coach for the running backs after spending his first year at ASU as the On-Campus Recruiting Coordinator.
"Bo is a young, up-and-coming coach who has been around the great game of football his entire life," says head coach Todd Graham. "He coached a career 3,000-yard rusher at Tulsa and he connects very well with today's players. He is an excellent recruiter and we will take advantage of that by having him on the road in recruiting."
Graham spent the 2011 season at the University of Pittsburgh, serving as the head graduate assistant and assistant wide receivers coach.
Before arriving at Pitt, Graham spent one season as the Offensive Coordinator at Tulsa Central High School. Prior to his time at TCHS, Graham was at the University of Tulsa as the running backs coach in 2007 and 2008.
Tulsa led the country in total offense during both of Graham's seasons and in 2008 Tulsa ranked fifth nationally in rushing offense. Graham guided running back Tarrion Adams into becoming the first running back in Tulsa history with over 3,000 career rushing yards and 1,000 career receiving yards. Adams also recorded two straight 1,000 yard rushing seasons, becoming Tulsa's single-season and career record holder.
Graham spent the 2006 season at Rice University as coordinator of speed and skill development and as assistant strength and conditioning coach.
Graham served three seasons (2003-2005) as a student assistant coach at Tulsa, working with the secondary. In each of his three seasons as an undergrad, Tulsa's defense ranked among the Top 40 nationally in takeaways, interceptions, pass defense efficiency, pass defense and total defense.
Graham played his college football at West Virginia as a walk-on receiver in 2001. Following an injury, Graham moved to the sidelines as a student assistant coach for the Mountaineers in 2002 before transferring to Tulsa. He earned his degree in exercise sports science with a minor in marketing from Tulsa in 2006.
