Quotes From Herm Edwards' Bizarre Arizona State Introductory Press Conference, Ranked

Quotes From Herm Edwards' Bizarre Arizona State Introductory Press Conference, Ranked

Oh, also: Herm Edwards is the new coach of the Arizona State Sun Devils. "That's what I do".

Edwards quoted former ASU star linebacker Pat Tillman, citing his passion for the game, as why he's ready to return to a more active role in the game. That said, Edwards had almost zero talent to work with, including a quarterback stable of Tyler Thigpen, Damon Huard, Brodie Croyle and the like.

"You don't forget how to coach", Edwards said.

Only Edwards knows that answer, but it is fun to believe he isn't sure what team he's coaching.

As an National Football League head coach, Edwards owns a 54-74 regular-season record.

In the game in 2012, Edwards had both Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston and Oakland Raiders receiver Amari Cooper on his team and to shed some light on the simplicity of coaching, he shared a story about introducing those players to each other that week.

The school held a presser today to formally announce the hiring, and for some reason, yet another agent vouched for Edwards's skill and integrity. After spending three seasons as San Jose State's defensive backs coach, he took the same position with the Chiefs in 1992. The school was searching for a replacement for the popular Todd Graham, who has the highest winning percentage by any previous coach for the past 30 years for the Sun Devils, but he was still let go after a 7-5 year in 2017.

Edwards went just 15-33 in three seasons at the Chiefs helm before being fired after the 2008 season.

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. He also played for the Atlanta Falcons and Los Angeles Rams in 1986.
