Report: Former Jets, Chiefs coach Herm Edwards hired at Arizona State

ESPN personality Herm Edwards will be taking his coaching talents to Arizona State.

Edwards was hired on Wednesday as Arizona State’s new football coach, according to SunDevilSource.com.

The last time that he coached in college was at San Jose from 1987-1989. Edwards then worked as a scout and later assistant for the Kansas City Chiefs. In 1996 he became the Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive backs coach and held that job until getting his first head coaching job with the New York Jets.

He coached there from 2001-2005, with a a 39-41 record. However, his Jets’ team in 2002 is one of only two teams to win the AFC East besides the New England Patriots since 2001—the other was the Miami Dolphins in 2008 when Tom Brady tore an ACL in the first game of the season.

Edwards became the Chiefs coach in 2006 and held that job for three seasons, going 15-33.

ESPN hired Edwards in 2009, and he had been with the company ever since as one its most lively football analysts.
