Taylor's interview about Erickson airs Sunday
By ESPN.com staff
Former Arizona State receiver Kerry Taylor has tweeted negative things about Sun Devils coach Dennis Erickson -- such as, that he's "not the right man for the job" -- but now you can hear him speak.
Taylor's interview with Tim Ring of Channel 3 in Phoenix will air on Sunday at 9:30 p.m. PT.
Recall that Ring's plan had been to interview Taylor's brother Kendyl Taylor about his commitment to Washington, but Kerry Taylor entered the story after Ring asked Kendyl whether he considered Arizona State. Wrote Ring in an email, "I went over to talk to Kendyl about his commitment to UW and afterwards Kerry sat down and opened up about his experience under Dennis Erickson at ASU."
Understand: Kerry Taylor has a right to his opinion about Erickson, but that doesn't mean it's widespread -- or even scattered -- amongst the current players, who are favorites in the Pac-12 South. We'll see how he articulates his position.
Taylor led the Sun Devils with 54 receptions for 699 yards and three touchdowns last year -- both numbers ranked in the top 10 in the Pac-10 -- and was honorable mention all-conference. He also is the son of former 10-year NFL veteran Keith Taylor and the nephew of former San Francisco 49er John Taylor.
