After the worst loss of his tenure in Tempe, Herm Edwards has “relinquished duties” as head coach.

“We have made the decision to make a change in the leadership of our football program, effective immediately. By mutual agreement, Coach Edwards and I have determined that he will relinquish duties as our head coach. At the core of this is doing what is best for our current tea, staff and university. I understand the frustrations out there. We must do better and that starts with our decision today.”

There are multiple reports running backs coach and former Chandler head football coach Shaun Aguano will serve as interim head coach. 

On Saturday, the Sun Devils lost to Eastern Michigan 30-21 and Edwards ended his tenure with a 26-20 record over since the 2018 season.
