Go ahead and add another name to the already long list of possibilities to replace Dennis Erickson as the head coach of the Arizona State Sun Devils.

Longtime NFL coach Jim Mora Jr. has interest in the position.

Mora joined Kevin Calabro and Jim Moore on Arizona Sports 620's sister station in Seattle, ESPN 710, and Moore specifically asked Mora about the Arizona State and UCLA jobs, which both became available on Monday. Mora had nice things to say about both.

"I think those are two great programs, they're obviously Pac-12 schools and you can recruit there and you can win there, so those are things I'd definitely consider," Mora said.

"If either or both of those people were to call me and ask if I was interested, I would certainly consider it very strongly."

Mora is currently out of coaching after spending 24 years as an NFL coach, most recently as the Seattle Seahawks head coach in 2009. Mora also served as the head coach of the Atlanta Falcons from 2004 to 2006.

His only college coaching experience was as a graduate assistant at the University of Washington in 1984.
