The 63-year-old Edwards, who has served as an ESPN analyst for the past nine years after being fired by the Kansas City Chiefs in 2008, will also serve as the CEO of what the Arizona State football program is dubbing its New Leadership Model.

Arizona State on Sunday officially announced Herm Edwards as its new football coach, but that won't be the former NFL head coach's only role in Tempe.

Graham will coach the team in the Hyundai Sun Bowl against NC State on December 29.

Hopefully, the big man upstairs takes no issue. "Someone in Herm Edwards" situation, they will say, "This is a very weird move, in fact, for someone to make'".

The department's New Leadership Model will be similar to an National Football League approach using a general manager structure. After the 2005 season, Edwards became one of a handful of NFL coaches to ever be traded when he was dealt by the Jets to the Chiefs in exchange for a fourth-round pick in the 2006 NFL Draft. Edwards' last college coaching job was at San Jose State in 1989, where he was defensive backs coach.

Infosys declares New CEO after Sikka's exit
According to Infosys filing at stock exchanges, Parekh has been appointed for a five-year term effective January 2. IT giant Infosys on Saturday announced Salil S Parekh as its new CEO and Managing Director.

It was reported last week that Anderson had chosen Edwards as coach but needed the OK from university president Michael Crow.

Only Edwards knows that answer, but it is fun to believe he isn't sure what team he's coaching.

Anderson, who spent over eight years as the NFL's executive vice president of football operations, was an agent and used to represent Edwards. The coach he's replacing, Todd Graham, went 46-31 in six years and led the team to five bowl games.

"It's a collaborative approach to managing the ASU football program that includes sport and administrative divisions, which will operate as distinct, but collective units focused on elevating all aspects of Sun Devil Football", the release said.

"Passion for my faith, my family and my occupation as a football coach are the things that have driven me back to the grass", Edwards said in the release.
