The Herm Edwards era at Arizona State is officially over.
Herm spent the last few seasons in Tempe, where he was 26-20 and wasn’t bad while being the head coach. The team started 1-2, with the most recent loss coming against Eastern Michigan, and the school decided to let him go after.
And by the looks of the video, it looks like it was right after the game. While he was still on the field getting ready to walk to the locker room.
He was met by the ASU president and AD, who was waiting for him near the endzone and had a little talk with him, and it looked like they were delivering the news right there.
Herm’s tenure at Arizona State wasn’t the best.
Herm Edwards’ tenure as Arizona State‘s football coach began with bravado, featured dollops of optimism and ultimately ended on Sunday amid a spiral of off-field issues and bad football.
Under the dark cloud of a significant NCAA investigation and in the wake of both a staff and roster exodus, Edwards’ time as coach ended like so many others in college football — with a humiliating loss.
Arizona State announced Sunday the school was making “a change in leadership” by “mutual agreement,” according to athletic director Ray Anderson. In reality, an embarrassing 30-21 home loss to Eastern Michigan on Saturday — at the hands of the Eagles’ backup quarterback — made Edwards’ inevitable departure a reality.
Edwards finishes his tenure at Arizona State (1-2) at 26-20 with one bowl win in five years. His time there will be remembered much more for the antics and issues off the field, as the NCAA investigation led to five full-time coaches leaving the staff, including both coordinators. The roster soon atrophied, as the program’s best quarterback, running back, defensive lineman and linebacker and its top two wide receivers transferred out in the past year.
Nevertheless, he was let go, and the school made it official Sunday night.
