True, Mike. The lack of discipline bit him in the ass. Too bad Erickson couldn't have traded Stoop a cup of stoicism for bombast. Both would have been better balanced for it.

It will be interesting to see what happens between Vontaze Burfict and whoever is ASU's head coach. Burfict went from being an All-American, eventually a very high draft pick, to not even getting honorable mention in the PAC-12. One of the most annoying moments for Sun Devil fans was watching that moron laugh and high-five his buds on the sidelines during the final minutes of the ASU-UA game. I hope he enjoyed it; that alone probably cost this clown millions in draft position status.

No matter how you feel about Dennis Erickson, a two-national-championship elder statesman had earned the right to wind down his fabled career celebrating his notable accomplishments, not being punked by a douchebag like Burfict. :mad:

I don't have anything against DE, other than his lack of discipline of his players.  Burfick could have been a great player, but only if he had been disciplined from his first day as a freshman.  As it is, he ended up just being an overweight thug.  I'm not sure how even DE could have let Burfict get so overweight.

A few days ago but a good summary of events:

And it looks like Kyle is staying put in Utah. ASU is gonna have to dig deeper into the checkbook or search farther down the coaching pool. Time is just an enemy at this point. I think they can still score well though.

Is this a good hire? I wonder what attracted to them to this coach? Leaving a big program after only 1 year and bailing on all those kids does not show a lot of character.

Here's more about the guy. So far about the only good thing I've read is that Pitt was among the lowest in penalties, but that is a heckuva reason to hire the guy. Here's hoping there's more. Time will tell.

Here's some more background on the guy. In the it's a small world category, he used to be on RichRod's staff.

Not only was he on RichRod's staff, so were his assistant coaches.  In fact, 3 of RichRod's first hires were from Graham's staff.  I also heard that Graham called those 3 coaches "mercenaries" for jumping ship to go to Arizona.  Is that funny, or what?

This may be a good hire.. Lots of coaches that have worked with him have went on to to other big programs.. Seems like he may have a eye for coordinator's..  Also you can throw out the 6-6 at PITT.. He took over after the other dude got fired for drunken driving.. None of those kids were his recruits and he had no QB on that team..  Give him some time I bet you may be suprised.

I'm surprised, so hopefully ASU knows something we don't.  I didn't even hear this guys name in conversations..

Certainly not the "Big Name" Coach we were hoping to land.

Hopefully it's a good hire...
