Herm Edwards is out of a job.
Arizona State announced Sunday that it was parting ways with Edwards after the Sun Devils lost 30-21 to Eastern Michigan on Saturday night. The loss dropped ASU to 1-2 on the year.
Edwards met with the Arizona State President and the Athletic Director while he was walking off the field. The video seems to show them having a deep conversation that alluded to him being let go from the position.
“We have made the decision to make a change in the leadership of our football program, effective immediately,” Arizona State athletic director Ray Anderson said in a statement. “By mutual agreement, Coach Edwards and I have determined that he will relinquish his duties as our head coach. At the core of this is doing what is best for our current team, staff, and university. I understand the frustrations out there. We must do better and that starts with our decision today.”
Arizona State has finished above .500 in each of Edwards’ three full seasons with the team. However, the team has been the subject of an offseason NCAA inquiry into recruiting violations after ASU allegedly hosted recruits on campus during NCAA-mandated recruiting dead periods.
The Sun Devils also saw numerous players transfer out of the program after the 2021 season, including now-LSU starting quarterback Jayden Daniels.
Arizona State went 26-20 in Edwards’ tenure.
