He was a head coach for eight years in the National Football League with the Jets (2001-05) and Chiefs (2006-08).

Arizona State made the hiring of head coach Herm Edwards official. Graham and his coaching staff will remain with the team through their bowl game.

Hopefully, the big man upstairs takes no issue.

In his press conference after firing of Todd Graham, Vice President for University Athletics Ray Anderson expressed his desire to retain assistant coaches Billy Napier and Phil Bennett, and it appears that ASU wants Napier to continue to run the offense, according to Dan Wolken of USA Today.

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

The department's New Leadership Model will be similar to an National Football League approach using a general manager structure. He is longtime friends with Anderson, who served as Edwards's agent during his NFL playing career, and has coached the Under Armour All-America Game, which features some of the nation's top high school football recruits, for the past eight years.

Speaking after the Thanksgiving holiday, an insider explained: "They both spent Thanksgiving with their families". People reported in October that The Weeknd and Gomez had called it quits after 10 months of dating.

The news was originally reported on Wednesday by SunDevilSource.com, and was approved by ASU president Michael Crow over the weekend.

Anderson also said that he wanted the next head coach for ASU football to have previous head coaching experience, and Edwards provides that.

Edwards said his last day at ESPN will be Friday, and then he will be back working for Arizona State and recruiting.

Edwards is perhaps best known for his "you play to win the game" rant following a game while he was the Jets' head coach. It's a collaborative approach to managing the ASU football program that includes sport and administrative divisions, which will operate as distinct, but collective units focused on elevating all aspects of Sun Devil Football.

"Passion for my faith, my family and my occupation as a football coach are the things that have driven me back to the grass", said Edwards.
