Check out what people were saying about ASU's decision to move on from Edwards as the Sun Devils' football coach.
Hiring Herm Edwards seemed like a bad idea at the time.
Than it looked a little better after the first couple seasons, but in the end I'm not sure the program made any more progress under him than it did under Todd Graham.
In fact, Graham probably did more.

It's tough to even know where to begin with the end of the Herm Edwards era, since it never should have started in the first place

Herm Edwards was fired from a job he never actually got to do.
The position he was hired for never existed.
All Herm wanted to do was help, and he did his best given the circumstances.
I appreciate him and will remember him as someone set up to fail and betrayed by “friends.”

Herm Edwards destroyed ASU Football.

The Herm Edwards hire seemed laughable at first, then his CEO approach was starting to work and the Sun Devils had some momentum.
That also came back to haunt ASU, because assistant coaches were reckless in recruiting and that dark cloud derailed everything.

A lot happened with Herm at Arizona State. Hire was widely panned. Briefly looked like ASU had really figured something out. Good chance it winds up even worse than people thought it would in the end, though (and we may not know how bad for a while). Self-inflicted wound here

Sucks. I was really happy to see him succeed for a little bit there. Thought it was cool an old coach was doing well. Oh well. Go sun devils! - Arkansas fan
