Dennis Erickson Fired: Kevin Sumlin Mentioned As Primary ASU Coaching Candidate

Houston Cougars head coach Kevin Sumlin is going to be doing his best to sell high. At 12-0 (and likely to be 13-0 after the Conference USA championship), his stock will never be higher, and with Case Keenum on his way out the door, it makes no sense for him to stick around.

So of course the Arizona St. Sun Devils should be moving quick to strike for a new head coach. Justin Hopkins of 247 Sports reports that ASU is doing exactly that.

Sumlin appears to be priority #1 for #ASU and I'm told he's ready to leave Houston.

Who else could Arizona State hire? Doug Haller reports on some potential candidates, including Sumlin, but also Larry Fedora at Southern Miss, Justin Wilcox at Tennessee, Mark Helfrich at Oregon, and Ron English at Eastern Michigan.

There are lots of good guys out there for ASU, lots of young and talented individuals who will be in the running for the job. The Sun Devils need to choose wisely if they hope to prevent stagnation within their program.
