Arizona State head coach Herm Edwards hasn’t had the start he was hoping for with the Sun Devils. ASU has gone 7-5 in back-to-back seasons. Surely, there’s room for improvement.
Edwards is hoping his latest coaching hire will be what the Sun Devils need to become a legitimate threat in the Pac-12. College football reporter Bruce Feldman reports Arizona State has hired Boise State offensive coordinator to the same position for ASU.

Hill released a statement on Saturday to address the new transition and his excitement for the opportunity.
“I am really excited about this opportunity and I truly believe it is a great situation for me at ASU. … I am really excited to get down there and I know we have some exciting weapons on offense,” Hill said in statement on Saturday morning, via 247Sports. “I look forward to putting together an explosive, fun offense that our fans will love to watch.”
As Hill points out, ASU certainly has plenty of weapons on offense. QB Jayden Daniels showed flashes of brilliance throughout his freshman campaign this season. And per usual, the Sun Devils are loaded at the receiver position.
If the former Boise State offensive coordinator can recruit a more formidable offensive line for the Sun Devils, they’ll be a dangerous West Coast team moving forward.
