ASU Football Coaching Search: Arizona State Representatives Meet With June Jones

The Arizona State University search for a new head football coach roll on. Following the dismissal of head coach Dennis Erickson, the Sun Devils have been rumored as courting several coaches over the past week.

The latest news is that ASU has spent significant time on Saturday meeting with June Jones, according to Paul Calvisi. Calvisi also reports that University of Southern Mississippi head coach Larry Fedora is not on ASU's short list, but hints that he may be an option in the future.

Jones, who has spent the past three seasons at Southern Methodist University, found his greatest success as the head coach of Hawaii, where his teams won Western Athletic Conference Championships in 1999 and 2007. Jones picked up a slew of managerial awards in 1999, including the WAC Coach of the Year award, The Sporting News National Coach of the Year and the Sports Illustrated National Coach of the Year.

Fedora has only been a head coach since his tenure at Southern Miss began in 2008, holding a 32-19 coaching record, with a 1-2 bowl record.
