Arizona State Football is gearing up for a big 2013 season. All-everything defensive end, Will Sutton announced that he will return for his senior season last week and another piece of the puzzle was filled on Friday with the addition of Chris Thomsen to the coaching staff.
Thomsen, who led Texas Tech to a victory in the Meineke Car Care Bowl as interim head coach, will return as running backs coach. Thomsen was hired in December 2011 by Arizona State head coach Todd Graham but left in February to coach at Texas Tech.
He inherited the head coaching position at Texas Tech after Tommy Tuberville resigned to take the head coach position at Cincinnati.
These are two important parts to the Sun Devils puzzle but there are still many areas that need to be filled before Coach Graham can call this a championship team.
Let's look further into the projections for Arizona State moving forward into 2013 and beyond.
