Herm Edwards to interview for Arizona State head coaching job

ESPN analyst and former NFL coach and player Herm Edwards is set to interview for Arizona State's football head coach position, 12 News has confirmed.

Edwards last coached the Kansas City Chiefs from 2006-2006. Prior to that, he was the head coach of the New York Jets from 2001-2005.

The former defensive back made his name as a player for the Philadelphia Eagles from 1977 until 1985. He also played for the Atlanta Falcons and Los Angeles Rams in 1986.

He was 56-78 as an NFL coach, including a 2-4 postseason record.

Edwards has been with ESPN since 2009.

Arizona State fired Todd Graham as head coach Sunday, one day after his Sun Devils beat rival Arizona to claim the Territorial Cup and finish the regular season at 7-5, slating them second in the Pac-12 South.

But Ray Anderson, ASU's athletic director, said the school would not settle for mediocrity in a press conference Sunday.

Graham still had $12 million and three years on his contract when he was fired, and the school may still owe him that money, even if he gets another job, based on language in his contract.
