The announcement is no surprise given the political pressure the school was facing regarding Graham.
There was a Hawaii state senate meeting last Friday where they addressed all of the players leaving the Hawaii football program as transfers. Multiple aggrieved parties spoke out against Graham during the meeting.
You can read a summary on this Twitter thread:
Lee describes "segregation" between walk-ons and scholarship players…mentions how Chevan (his good friend) would get preferential treatment…would be excluded out of communication with Graham…mentions microaggressions between him and coach.

Matters continued on Wednesday when a state senator called for the removal of the school president, athletic director, and football coach (Graham).

Two days later, the senator got his wish as Graham is out.
Graham went 11-11 in two seasons as Hawaii’s coach. This marked his first head coaching job since being fired by Arizona State, where he coached from 2012-2017.
