The Associated PressTEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — A person with direct knowledge of the plan has told the AP former NFL coach Herm Edwards is in line to become Arizona State’s next coach, pending approval of the university president.
The official spoke to the AP on the condition of anonymity Wednesday night because the deal and official announcement are still being finalized.
Edwards became a surprise candidate to replace Todd Graham after saying on ESPN’s SportsCenter and a Phoenix radio station Wednesday that he was interviewing for the job.
He appears to be in line to get the job, provided President Michael Crow signs off on the deal after returning from China this weekend. An announcement could come early next week.
