This was a move that came out of nowhere. Arizona State was so quiet that I wrote this story the day before on ASU coaches staying put while everyone else was making personnel moves. He was speculated as a candidate at a couple schools but was never reported as anything serious. ASU fans really didn't think the offense didn't perform well enough to warrant Norvell a head-coaching job this offseason.
2. Memphis has become used to a fast paces, high scoring type offense. The offense, however, has been predicated on a run first and then throw over your head type passing game. What can fans expect from a Mike Norvell offense?
4. If you surfed the internet over the past season you would read where (some) ASU fans were wanting Norvell fired. At the end of the season the Sun Devils ranked in the top 25 of overall offense. What caused this vocal minority to turn on him?
5. National media has taken to twitter and raved over this hire. Some media members have been saying for years to keep an eye on Mike Norvell. This will be a softball question for you, but how do you feel Norvell will do in his career but most importantly his first head coaching job?
