ASU hires former Texas assistant Jay Norvell

Arizona State University has added Jay Norvell as the program’s passing game coordinator and wide receivers coach.

Todd Graham announced the hiring, saying Norvell will be a huge addition to the team’s offense.

Jay will be an incredible asset for our student-athletes, our program and our university as a whole. He brings unmatched experience, both at the professional level and some of the top programs in Div. 1, and has been a part of offenses with three Hall of Fame wide receivers in the National Football League, and a Heisman Trophy winner, two Biletnikoff semifinalists and 14 bowl games at the collegiate level.

The former Texas assistant was previously interviewed by ASU in December for their offensive coordinator opening.

Norvell brings extensive coaching experience to ASU, having coached in both the BCS National Championship and the Super Bowl.

I’m really excited to be a part of the energy and direction surrounding Coach Graham and the Sun Devil Football program. I have great respect for this place and what Coach Graham has done here, and the dynamic, innovative and cutting-edge things going on inside these walls make this the perfect fit for me.

The Sun Devils look to improve on their 6-7 record from 2015.
