Herm Edwards has officially been named the new coach of the Arizona State Sun Devils football team, after spending nine years with ESPN as an NFL analyst.

Newly appointed Arizona State University NCAA college football head coach Herman Edwards smiles during a news conference, Monday, Dec. 4, 2017, in Tempe, Ariz. The latter two addressed a change in philosophy in the Sun Devil football program.

Hopefully, the big man upstairs takes no issue.

"We want to recruit, we want to coach, we want to develop and we want to elevate", Anderson said.

The school said in a release that Edwards will oversee a "New Leadership Model" that's similar to the National Football League approach using a general manager structure. Edwards was known for his colorful ways when he coached the Chiefs, and that was the case Monday.

"This is what I do", he said.

Edwards is definitely off to an interesting start with the Sun Devils. This structure will allow the department to form a multi-layered method to the talent evaluation and recruiting processes, increase its emphasis on both student-athlete and coach development and retention, and provide a boost in resource allocation and generation.

Arizona State's bold move is official. He has not coached at any level since 2008, when he finished 2-14 in his eighth year as an National Football League head coach, his third and final year with the Kansas City Chiefs.

Before coaching, he played in the National Football League from 1977 to 1986 with the Philadelphia Eagles, Atlanta Falcons and Los Angeles Rams as a defensive back. Prior to that, he was the head coach of the New York Jets from 2001-2005.

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

Edwards has been an ESPN analyst since 2009.
