Herm Edwards is making the transition from ESPN back to coaching and will have to get acquainted with the ins and outs at Arizona State.

If Herm Edwards dislikes devils, he may want to reconsider taking Arizona State's head-coaching job.

ASU has scheduled a press conference for Monday at 10:30 a.m.at Sun Devil Stadium.

Hopefully, the big man upstairs takes no issue. That said, Edwards had almost zero talent to work with, including a quarterback stable of Tyler Thigpen, Damon Huard, Brodie Croyle and the like.

Arizona State described the New Leadership Model as "similar to an National Football League approach using a general manager structure".

While Edwards hasn't coached since being fired by the Kansas City Chiefs following the 2008 season, the 63-year-old showed he had plenty of fire on Monday.

It was reported last week that Edwards - out of the college ranks since 1989 - would be the program's new head coach if school president Dr. Michael Crow approved the hire (more on that here).

Anderson, who once represented Edwards as an agent, doesn't buy that line of thinking. Graham was 46-31 in six seasons for Arizona State. Edwards, a former NFL head coach and current ESPN analyst will assume the head coach position and serve as football CEO according to ASU athletic director Ray Anderson.

Edwards posted a 39-41 record in five seasons with the Jets.

Edwards also referenced his former coach with the Philadelphia Eagles, Dick Vermeil, noting how he still demonstrated the willingness to coach long after he transitioned into the broadcast booth.

Edwards will oversee what the university called a New Leadership Model, which it says will be "a collaborative approach to managing the ASU football program that includes sport and administrative divisions, which will operate as distinct, but collective units focused on elevating all aspects of Sun Devil Football".
