The Arizona State Sun Devils have hired former Texas Tech offensive lineman coach Chris Thomsen to coach running backs. Thomsen was the interim head coach for Tech in the bowl win over Minnesota last month.
Dennis Erickson was fired Monday after five seasons at Arizona State. Erickson was relieved of his duties after posting a season record of 6-6. Even though Erickson was fired, he will still coach the team in their bowl game.
