"My personal commitment to build young men to be whole people through the game of football is completely in alignment with the vision President Michael Crow and Vice President for University Athletics Ray Anderson have for this program," Edwards said in a statement. "I stand ready for the challenge of working with them to elevate Sun Devil Football. I am very excited and humbled to be the Arizona State head football coach."
"The only way to make it better is you do this: If you want all of them to show up, make the game worth $500,000," Edwards said. "They will all show up and now they play. Here is the problem, when one of them gets hurt you have the same problem."
