    Hmm... well, the defensive side of the ball was generally more consistent under DG than the offense was under Likens. But they had their ups and downs, too. Here's hoping Herm can find a superior replacement.

    It sounds like the Sun Devils may fill the defensive coordinator position from within.

    A good chance Herm Edwards will promote from within to replace Gonzales. LB coach Antonio Pierce or DB coach Tony White. If White isn't promoted, he could end up as Gonzales' DC. Those two are close. Although money could be a factor.

    Going to be AP. He fits the mold of the NFL model Herm is trying to incorporate.

    Losing Danny hurts some but isn't end of days. It will be interesting to see who gets the position and what kind of defense they deploy.

    Smart move promoting him and Pierce. Keeps Herm's best recruiters in the fold.

    Another move by ASU to upgrade its ability to recruit in Southern California, hiring Chris Hawkins from USC as our new DB coach, making him the youngest assistant coach at a power 5 school per Azcentral.

    Herm Edwards' contract has been extended for another two seasons. Solid move. He has the program headed in the right direction.

    ASU announces that it has extended coach Herm Edwards' contract for two years through 2024, which gives Edwards a five-year agreement, the maximum the state allows. Extension subject to approval from Arizona Board of Regents.

    Tough loss for Sun Devils. Jamar Cain, defensive line coach, will leave ASU for Oklahoma.

    Losing a hell of a recruiter. It's not only recruits you have to worry about losing to bigger programs, you have to worry about coaches who can bring in those recruits as well. Hopefully, Herm can find a new up and coming recruiter to replace Cain.

    I certainly hope Herm can bring in a capable replacement. It seems the hire occurred so late in the process.

    Herm should take pro model to next level and bring in Eric Allen to coach DBs and Darren Woodson to coach LBs. Kids and parents would be in awe having these guys in their homes on recruiting visits.
