Tom Bradley Passed Over As Pitt Goes Another Direction

The Penn State coaching staff has dodged another bullet as the University of Pittsburgh decided not to go with Nittany Lion defensive coordinator Tom Bradley to fill their head coaching vacancy, instead opting for Tulsa head coach Todd Graham to take over the program.

Pittsburgh was forced to re-open its coaching search after their first hire, Mike Haywood, was arrested in December on domestic battery charges. They had also interviewed Alabama assistant and Pitt grad Sal Sunseri whose son Tino is a Panther quarterback.

Bradley, who was earlier courted by Temple for their head coaching position, also interviewed with Connecticut on Sunday and is said to be a strong candidate to take over for Randy Edsall who left for Maryland last week.

Will the third time be the charm for Scrap or will he the bridesmaid but never the bride again? Most college football experts know that the man can coach, but only time will tell if the Huskies decide to take a chance on him.
