College football world reacts to Purdue hiring former star quarterback

The Purdue football program is beginning to fill out its coaching staff.

Just two days after Ryan Walters accepted the head-coaching job, he now has his own offensive coordinator.

According to ESPN's Adam Rittenberg, Walters is going to hire Graham Harrell.

Harrell spent this past season as the offensive coordinator at West Virginia after serving in the same job at USC for three seasons.

Before he got into coaching, Harrell was the quarterback at Texas Tech under the late Mike Leach.

He was a Red Raider from 2005–08 and finished fourth in Heisman Trophy voting as a senior.

The college football community loves this fare to Purdue.

"Graham Harrell played QB for Mike Leach at Texas Tech before serving on his staff at Washington State. Good hire by the Ole Boilermakers," read another tweet.

Purdue will be hoping Harrell takes its offense to the next level in 2023.
