There’s a USC flavor to the Arizona State story from Yahoo:
“As (associate head coach Antonio Pierce) accumulated power and convinced (Herm) Edwards to bring in recruiting-focused coaches like defensive backs coach Chris Hawkins and receivers coach Prentice Gill. Neither had on-field experience at a Power Five school. They replaced veteran coaches who Pierce didn’t think recruited well enough.”
Remember, Gill turned down a 3-year contract to become USC tight ends coach back in January. He was a graduate assistant at USC from 2016-18.
Hawkins was a graduate assistant at USC before he got hired at Arizona State and obviously played safety for the Trojans.
