Former ASU coach Todd Graham stole 17 championship soccer rings in Tempe – ABC15 Arizona
TEMPE, AZ – A sad loss for former ASU soccer coach Todd Graham who is just blocks away from so many of his Sun Devil achievements. Someone stole 17 of their championship soccer rings from a friend's car in Tempe.
Graham calls it heartbreaking, "It's such a part of you. I know it's just metal, but it represents so much and it's really irreplaceable."
The loss includes four Territorial Cup rings, conference championships, bowl games, and a ring from his own playing time when he was named first-team All-American in the 1985-1986 season. All are engraved with his name.
The Grahams recently sold their Scottsdale home. To be extra careful, they didn't pack the rings with their other belongings. Instead, they asked a family friend to take her to Hawaii, where he is now training. Graham says the rings were stolen from her car before she could start the trip.
Police and pawn shops have been alerted, and Graham says he is ready to offer a reward but hopes anyone who has it will do the right thing.
