Arizona State hires former Chiefs' coach Herm Edwards

Arizona State hires former Chiefs' coach Herm Edwards

The move is still pending approval by the Arizona Board of Regents.

But, Herm Edwards as Arizona State's football coach?

While we're not expecting a fiasco on the level of say, Tennessee, the angel on Edwards' shoulder might be urging Edwards at least reconsidering the decision to lead the Sun Devils, as Edwards' introductory news conference Monday sure made it seem like he had no clue Arizona State's mascot was the Sun Devil.

The school held a presser today to formally announce the hiring, and for some reason, yet another agent vouched for Edwards's skill and integrity.

"During my years with and around the NFL, there is not a more respected man that has the passion for the game of football like that of Herm Edwards", said Anderson.

The "New Leadership Model" will include sport and administrative divisions to manage the football program, the two sides sharing resources and planning to further the program.

It was reported last week that Anderson had chosen Edwards as coach but needed the OK from university president Michael Crow.

Edwards, a 63-year-old ESPN analyst and former National Football League head coach, will lead the charge as "a head coach who serves as a CEO", according to athletic director Ray Anderson, Edwards' former National Football League agent. Edwards, a former NFL head coach and current ESPN analyst will assume the head coach position and serve as football CEO according to ASU athletic director Ray Anderson. He was a head coach for eight years in the National Football League with the Jets (2001-05) and Chiefs (2006-08).

"Devils Digest, huh?" said Edwards, who asked where his business was located.

This season, Arizona State posted a 7-5 record and face N.C. State in the Sun Bowl on December 29. Bringing in Edwards to run the football program has created a stir nationally and within the Sun Devils' fan base.
