Regents approve extensions for ASU’s Graham, Hurley

“The Arizona Board of Regents approved one-year contract extensions for Arizona State football coach Todd Graham and basketball coach Bobby Hurley.”

Not a surprise to see the board approve both contract extensions. Coach Graham has brought success and stability to ASU’s Football program, while coach Hurley has brought a new life to ASU’s Men’s Basketball program. Both coaches are relatively young and could stay with ASU for much longer than their current contracts, which now run out in 2021.

Anonymous Pac-12 coaches dish on ASU football’s 2015 defensive struggles

“For a 2016 college football preview special, ESPN asked Graham’s Pac-12 peers what exactly went wrong for the Sun Devils in 2015, and anonymously, a few offensive coaches dished on why the defense was ‘exposed.'”

A very good article that will have many ASU football fans screaming, “Take a hint Todd Graham!” Todd Graham loves his defense to blitz, but it didn’t work for the Sun Devils last season and these coaches give fans the reason why.

More from Devils in Detail

“Football is known to be a game of inches. Tim White’s road to the Olympics follows the same path. 3 and a half inches. This distance is what separates the Sun Devil from qualifying to the U.S. Olympic Trials in triple jump. The wide receiver in football jumped a career best 16.57m (54-4½ inches) on Friday during NCAA Outdoor Track Championships in Eugene, Ore. to earn an excellent fourth place.”

A very heartbreaking/interesting article that shows just how athletic wide receivers are now-a-days. White is a very underrated receiver and if he can form a connection with the starting quarterback for the Sun Devils he could have a very big senior season.
