Arizona State loses D-line coach
By Ted Miller
Arizona State is looking for a new defensive line coach after Grady Stretz was hired by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, a school spokesman confirmed.
Stretz, who was also the Sun Devils recruiting coordinator, spent five seasons at ASU. He signed a three-year contract with the Buccaneers, according to the Arizona Republic, which includes a significant raise.
Whoever replaces Stretz inherits one of the few questionable positions for Arizona State, which welcomes back 19 starters and is the probable favorite in the Pac-12 South Division. Two of the three lost starters -- other than both specialists -- are at defensive tackle: Lawrence Guy, who opted to enter the NFL draft a year early, and Saia Falahola.
