So Long, Dennis, We Hardly Knew Ye — Again

Issue: Arizona State hiring Erickson as coach/East Valley Tribune; and: Erickson takes Arizona State job/Spokesman-Review

More Info: Dennis Erickson is on the verge of becoming the 22nd head football coach at Arizona State University. An ASU official indicated on Saturday that negotiations between Erickson and the school are continuing. A source close to the football program told the Tribune that a deal will be reached, and that some of Erickson’s assistant coaches have already been determine.

Family Phil: James (Bond), if you want to take this opportunity to rip on Dennis, have at it. He is now persona non grata in my book. I hope he chokes on all that desert sand.

DFO: Seems like only yesterday that Erickson was lying that there was no truth to the rumors that he’d been hired. Whazzat? It was yesterday?

Question: Did you really think he was going to stay this time?
