SS PODCAST: Arizona RB coach Scottie Graham on God directing his steps

THIS IS THE SPORTS SPECTRUM PODCAST
WITH JASON ROMANO, FEATURING SCOTTIE GRAHAM

Scottie Graham is a former NFL running back who is currently the running backs coach at the University of Arizona.

After a stellar college career at Ohio State, he was selected in the seventh round of the 1992 NFL Draft by the Pittsburgh Steelers. After one season in Pittsburgh and then a stint with the New York Jets, he signed with the Vikings and played four seasons in Minnesota, leading the club in rushing in 1993. He finished his NFL career with the Bengals in 1997. In six seasons as an NFL running back, he had zero fumbles.

Following his playing career, Graham went to work with the NFL Players Association for 16 years. He then spent six years with Arizona State as the lead administrator for student-athlete development and welfare. In 2021, he moved into his current role with the University of Arizona as the running backs coach, his first coaching job in football.

On today’s podcast, we talk to Graham about his new role at Arizona, the importance of good energy, having peace of mind, the importance of standards over rules, and his testimony of faith in Jesus Christ.
