The former NFL coach is reportedly in the mix.

Arizona State moved on from former head coach Todd Graham this weekend, and multiple names are starting to emerge as potential candidates to take over.

Former NFL coaches Tony Dungy and Herm Edwards are reportedly helping Arizona State athletic director Ray Anderson search for the Sun Devils next head coach.

Now a report has linked Edwards to the head coaching vacancy.

According to Paul Calvisi of Arizona Sports, Edwards has emerged as a "serious candidate" for the job.

Former NFL head coach and current TV analyst Herm Edwards has become a serious candidate to replace Todd Graham as Arizona State’s head coach, multiple sources told 98.7 FM Arizona’s Sports Station’s Paul Calvisi.

Edwards last coached the Kansas City Chiefs in 2008. The 63-year-old former coach racked up a less-than-impressive 54-74 record during his eight seasons in the NFL, but led his teams to four playoff appearances.

Edwards hasn't coached in college since 1989 when he was the defensive backs coach for San Jose State.
