Share

After a flurry of rumors and reports, the Sun Devils announced the hiring of former National Football League head coach Herm Edwards. Arizona State's mascot is the Sun Devils, and it's not entirely clear that Edwards knows that. They released this statement on how they now want the team to be run more like a franchise.

Edwards has spent the last eight years as an analyst for ESPN.

As an National Football League head coach, Edwards owns a 54-74 regular-season record. Edwards' last experience at the college level was as the defensive backs coach at San Jose State from 1987-1989.

Edwards has coached for the Under Armor All-America game for the past eight years, and recently said on SportsCenter that it contributed to him wanting to return to the coaching world. "My personal commitment to build young men to be whole people through the game of football is completely in alignment with the vision President Michael Crow and Vice President for University Athletics Ray Anderson have for this program".

"Our goal for this football program is to reach unprecedented heights, and therefore we need to find a way to operate more innovatively and efficiently than we have in the past", Anderson said.

"Arizona State will introduce Edwards as its new coach at a Monday morning news conference", AZ Central reported on Sunday. Anderson also notes that "the head coach will be a dynamic and tireless recruiter".

The Sun Devils fired coach Todd Graham after six seasons on November 26 and wanted to move quickly with the early-signing period for high school recruits starting December 20.

Edwards posted a 39-41 record in five seasons with the Jets.

Anthony Totri of the Arizona Republic noted this dichotomy in a tweet: "At one point Herm Edwards said the players aren't playing for the names on the back of their jerseys, rather they play for the name on the front (Sun Devils)". "At the end of the day we're still average, middle of the pack and going to a low bowl game".
