Idaho athletic director Rob Spear announced tonight that Dennis Erickson is indeed heading for Arizona State.
Spear was very disappointed at DE's decision, and was quoted of saying:
I mean, come on. Here's a guy that's won two National Championships with Miami, turned our Oregon State team around after 20-some consecutive losing seasons, and you don't expect him to get offers in the off-season.
He's a Pac-10 caliber coach, and will make a big impact on the Arizona State program. He's going to get more than $214,000 a year, and his contract runs through 2010.
Best of luck to Dennis at Arizona State. And may we hopefully beat you for the second year in a row.
