Herm Edwards, college football coach, is the gift that gives on giving and National Signing Day was no exception.
Edwards, a former NFL coach who surprisingly accepted the head coaching position at Arizona State in December, appeared on ESPN’s live Signing Day broadcast on Wednesday and mentioned one of the biggest challenges of coaching at the collegiate level.
While Edwards did point out the obvious, it’s definitely a notable change from drafting and signing players during his eight seasons with the New York Jets (2001-05) and Kansas City Chiefs (2006-08). Still, it’s one of numerous head-scratching soundbites that the coach has provided since arriving in Tempe.
Edwards has noted his confusion about the recruiting process in the past, as well as a reporter’s affiliation with DevilsDigest.com which, of course, was named after the team he had just accepted the coaching position with.
“I’m Catholic now; I’m a Christian,” Edwards said. “Watch out for them Devils. Just saying! We’re good, brother. We’re good! I ain’t taking it personal.”
Gotta love Herm!
