If Herm Edwards dislikes devils, he may want to reconsider taking Arizona State's head-coaching job.
The former ESPN analyst, who hasn't coached since 2008, conducted an introductory press conference on Monday. Standing in front of multiple pitchfork insignia, he acted incredulously to a reporter introducing himself as an employee of Devils Digest.
"Devils Digest, huh?" Edwards said. "Where you located, my man?"
He joked about having to "watch out" for devils as a religious man. Perhaps he did not realize, or simply forgot, that ASU's mascot is the Sun Devils.
Per Sports on Earth's David Ubben, he also offered this odd quote:

The former New York Jets and Kansas City Chiefs head coach hadn't conducted a press conference in a while. ASU fans will hope his reassimilation on the sideline goes more smoothly.
