A collection of rings from Hawai'i coach Todd Graham's career have been stolen, with the family hoping the collection can be recovered.
Graham's wife, Penni, told the Arizona Republic that more than a dozen rings had been packed and placed into a friend's car in Scottsdale in the process of moving. That car was broken into on Tuesday, she said, and the rings were among the items taken.
Among the rings stolen were a Pac-12 South title ring from 2013, when Graham was coaching at Arizona State, and an NAIA ring from the 1993 national title that Graham earned as the defensive coordinator at East Central (Oklahoma).
"They had no idea what was in there," Penni Graham told the newspaper. "They hold so many memories for us of the relationships and hard work we put into it and the teams put in. The monetary value is nothing compared to our emotional value. All the rings tell incredible stories. Todd was devastated."
Police have recovered two rings, including the NAIA title ring, from pawn shops in Arizona.
Graham was hired as Hawai'i coach in January. Before that, he most recently coached at Arizona State from 2012 to 2017.
