ASU football extends head coach Herm Edwards through 2024

Edwards has a 15-11 record since assuming the role in Dec. 2017

ASU football head coach Herm Edwards has extended his contract through the 2024 season with the team, Sun Devil Athletics announced in a statement on Monday.

Edwards, 65, has a 15-11 record, captured five wins against Top 25 ranked teams and made two bowl appearances over the past two seasons since his arrival to the Sun Devil football program in December 2017.

"We are pleased to announce this two-year contract extension for Head Football Coach Herm Edwards," Vice President for Athletics Ray Anderson said in the statement.  "Dr. Michael Crow (ASU President) and I are extremely encouraged with the overall direction of the football program under Coach Edwards and his staff ... This five-year commitment to Coach Edwards will demonstrate to prospective student-athletes and their parents the long-term commitment the University has toward his valued leadership."

Since ASU's recent bowl victory against Florida State in El Paso, Edwards and his coaching staff have turned their attention to the 2020 season, where their recruiting class is looking to be one of the more talented incoming groups in recent years.

Standouts of the new class include four four-star wide receivers, two four-star running backs, and one four-star outside linebacker.

The class has 16 players that have signed their National Letter of Intent (NLI), as well as two hard commits.

"It is an honor for myself and my family to serve as Head Football Coach at Arizona State University," Edwards said in the announcement. "We have accomplished a lot in our first two years in Tempe and we look forward to continuing that momentum in all facets of our program. Recruiting is the lifeblood of winning college football games and we are pleased with where we are and we look forward to continued improvement."
