Arizona St. Introduces Erickson As Coach

Updated:
TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) _ Arizona State turned to a well-traveled coach Monday, introducing Dennis Erickson as the man to lead the Sun Devils' football program out of mediocrity.

The hiring, announced at a news conference on the ASU campus, marks the third Pac-10 coaching job for Erickson. He previously had stints at Washington State and Oregon State.

The 59-year-old coach has a 149-64-1 record in 18 seasons that, in addition to the two Pac-10 schools, included stops in Idaho (twice), Wyoming and Miami. He also coached six years in the NFL, four with Seattle and two with San Francisco.

Erickson comes to Arizona State after one season at Idaho, where he had taken the job where his career started. He was out of coaching in 2005 after being fired by the 49ers following a 2-14 season.
