On Monday, Edwards held his first news conference since being hired as Arizona State's football coach.

In the end, it doesn't matter as long as his Sun Devils "play...to win...the game" and make some noise in the Pac-12.

Arizona State described the New Leadership Model as "similar to an National Football League approach using a general manager structure". We have no idea if this will work out.

"We want to recruit, we want to coach, we want to develop and we want to elevate", Anderson said. "I'll be back in studio in Bristol (at ESPN), and I'll be coaching football by the way", Edwards said.

Edwards spent most of his coaching career at the National Football League level.

The news was originally reported on Wednesday by SunDevilSource.com, and was approved by ASU president Michael Crow over the weekend. Edwards also coached for the New York Jets and went 39-41 over five seasons there.

"I think a lot of coaches when they get these jobs, they become dominated in that I have to do everything", Edwards said.

Edwards will oversee what the university called a New Leadership Model, which it says will be "a collaborative approach to managing the ASU football program that includes sport and administrative divisions, which will operate as distinct, but collective units focused on elevating all aspects of Sun Devil Football". "I coach football. And I have been coaching football my whole life".

Graham, who will coach Arizona State through its appearance in the Sun Bowl against North Carolina State on December 29, compiled a 95-60 record in six seasons.

Here are some additional details on Arizona State's planned restructuring. Frankly, that's not what we aspire to be.

While addressing the media in his introductory press conference, a reporter from the Devils Digest asked a question which resulted in an answer from Edwards regarding his Christianity.
