Herm Edwards' first news conference at Arizona State didn't disappoint

The move is still pending approval by the Arizona Board of Regents.

The Arizona State Sun Devils have officially named Herm Edwards as the school's new head football coach, according to an official release from the school.

During his introductory press conference on Monday, he got a question from a Devils Digest reporter before Edwards, seemingly surprised by the name of the publication, cut him off to make a joke and let him know he's a Christian man.

The school held a presser today to formally announce the hiring, and for some reason, yet another agent vouched for Edwards's skill and integrity.

"Our goal for this football program is to reach unprecedented heights, and therefore we need to find a way to operate more innovatively and efficiently than we have in the past", athletic director Ray Anderson said in a statement.

It was reported last week that Anderson had chosen Edwards as coach but needed the OK from university president Michael Crow.

"We want to recruit, we want to coach, we want to develop and we want to elevate", Anderson said.

And the Sun Devils are going to take an NFL-like approach to their coaching now as well.

The former New York Jets and Kansas City Chiefs head coach hadn't conducted a press conference in a while.

Edwards, who will oversee the New Leadership Model, arrives in Tempe with a football legacy that has impacted thousands, whether as a player, coach, analyst, motivational speaker and author, or community advocate and philanthropist.

Arizona State fired coach Todd Graham Nov. 26 after six seasons in Tempe. Arizona State's mascot is the Sun Devils, and it's not entirely clear that Edwards knows that.

Edwards also offered up this gem as he paraphrased former Arizona State star Pat Tillman: "Football ignites my soul".
