Edwards, 63, has not coached since 2008 when he went 2-14 as the head coach of the Kansas City Chiefs.

It will be interesting to see if Edwards can be successful at Arizona State, but his agent made an interesting statement when introducing the coach at Monday's press conference. Yes, ASU's mascot is a Sun Devil.

During his introductory press conference on Monday, he got a question from a Devils Digest reporter before Edwards, seemingly surprised by the name of the publication, cut him off to make a joke and let him know he's a Christian man.

Anderson is thrilled to have Edwards aboard.

The department's New Leadership Model will be similar to an National Football League approach using a general manager structure.

On Friday morning, the search for 3-year-old Mariah intensified with a renewed effort that included hundreds of volunteers. Kimrey is the live-in boyfriend of Mariah Woods' mother Kristy Woods, CBS affiliate WNCN reported .

"We want to recruit, we want to coach, we want to develop and we want to elevate", Anderson said. He also coached the New York Jets from 2001 to 2005 before going to Kansas City in 2006. The last time he coached at the college level was back in 1989, when he oversaw the defensive backs at San Jose State. Edwards, a former NFL head coach and current ESPN analyst will assume the head coach position and serve as football CEO according to ASU athletic director Ray Anderson.

Only Edwards knows that answer, but it is fun to believe he isn't sure what team he's coaching.

"It's a collaborative approach to managing the ASU football program that includes sport and administrative divisions, which will operate as distinct, but collective units focused on elevating all aspects of Sun Devil Football", the release said.

"Passion for my faith, my family and my occupation as a football coach are the things that have driven me back to the grass", said Edwards. "I am very excited and humbled to be the Arizona State head football coach".

Graham, who will coach Arizona State through its appearance in the Sun Bowl against North Carolina State on December 29, compiled a 95-60 record in six seasons.
