Pac-12 Football Preview: New Coaches At Arizona, ASU Headline Key Stories

Pac-12 football in the state of Arizona is going to be very interesting this upcoming season.

Rich Rodriguez enters Tucson to take over an underachieving program that still hasn't made a Rose Bowl. The Arizona Wildcats will now switch to a read-option offense, a complete 180 from their previous air-raid scheme. They will also implement a 3-3-5 scheme on defense, which provides much more flexibility than previous defenses employed by Mike Stoops and his staff.

The Arizona St. Sun Devils struck out on a couple of their first coaching candidates, leaving them with Todd Graham. There is no doubt coach Graham knows what he's doing on the football field, but many have questioned the way he goes about handling his business off the field. Despite these questions, ASU is off to a strong start on the recruiting trail and everyone is excited to see a new era of football in Tempe.

SB Nation recently previewed the key storylines to watch for in the Pac-12 this season. Check it out after the jump.
