Arizona State is not extending football coach Todd Graham's contract by one year as it has done annually in the past, leaving Graham under contract for less than five years for the first time since his arrival.

ASU is coming off two consecutive losing seasons going into Graham's sixth season. He is under contract through June 30, 2021 " a period covering the 2017-2020 seasons " per terms of an amended contract approved last year by the Arizona Board of Regents.

Graham received one-year contract extensions in September 2013, June 2014, September 2015 and June 2016, keeping his contract length at its original five years. Now, he will have four years left on his contract going into this season and three after the 2017 season.

ASU Vice President for Athletics Ray Anderson said a contract extension for Graham is not mandatory although his contract reads: "If grounds do not exist for termination for cause, ASU will ask the board to extend coach's contract for one additional year following completion of the 2016 football season."

Anderson said, "Thats not an automatic provision in the contract. It wasnt rolled over because it didnt need to be rolled over."

Graham had no comment on the decision not to extend his contract.
