Arizona State head coach Herm Edwards is hiring San Diego State defensive coordinator Danny Gonzales to the same position, according to a source. Gonzales will replace Phil Bennett, who last week resigned as defensive coordinator because of personal reasons. Arizona State had hoped Bennett would stay on with Edwards. Bennett still will coach the Sun Devils against NC State in the Hyundai Sun Bowl on Dec. 29. SunDevilSource.com first reported the Gonzales hire. He is expected to receive a two-year contract with Arizona State. Gonzales was promoted to defensive coordinator this season after spending the previous six coaching the Aztecs safeties. He worked with San Diego State coach Rocky Long at New Mexico and played for the Lobos.
