Arizona State fires head coach Herm Edwards three games into 2022 season

Arizona State fired football coach Herm Edwards in his fifth season.

This follows an ugly loss to Eastern Michigan and an ongoing NCAA investigation into illegal recruiting practices.

The Sun Devils never won more than eight games in a season under Edwards' coaching.

Edwards managed to hold onto his job after an up-and-down 2021, despite shaky losses that led to his firing three games into the season.

Edwards, a former NFL head coach, was considered an unconventional hire as he had not been a college coach since the 1980s.

The Sun Devils begin Pac-12 play against Utah, Southern California and  Washington.
