TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — Herm Edwards is adding a new title at Arizona State: Professor.
The school announced Thursday that the Arizona State head football coach will become a professor of practice at the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication.
Edwards will serve as a guest lecturer and conduct regular discussions on sports and media while continuing to coach the football team.
A former NFL coach, Edwards spent eight years as a football analyst for ESPN. He was hired as Arizona State's coach last year and surpassed outside expectations, leading the Sun Devils to a 7-6 record and a trip to the Las Vegas Bowl.
