ASU football offensive coordinator Mike Norvell named new Memphis head coach

Football offensive coordinator and deputy head coach Mike Norvell is leaving ASU to become the head coach at Memphis, per reports from Pete Thamel Sports Illustrated and Geoff Calkins of the Memphis Commercial Appeal.

The news comes just hours after SI's Thayer Evans reported Memphis co-offensive coordinator and quarterbacks Brad Cornelsen left to become Virginia Tech’s offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach under former Tigers head coach Justin Fuente, who also brought Torrian Gray and defensive line coach Charley Wiles on to his Memphis staff. 

Norvell was reportedly visiting Dillon Sterling-Cole, and ASU commit and ESPN 300 quarterback, in Houston Wednesday night.
