Dennis Erickson Biography
Dennis Erickson was born March 24, 1947, in Everett, Washington and is the head coach of the Arizona State Sun Devils football team. He has been the head coach of six college football programs and two NFL franchises.
Erickson was named Sporting News National Coach of the Year in 2000. His name also came up for several high-profile college football positions. In late 2000, Erickson was a primary choice to fill the vacant position at the University of Southern California, however he spurned a $7.2 million, five year contract to remain with the Beavers; the position would eventually go to Pete Carroll.
Erickson remained coach at Oregon State for four seasons (1999-2002) before accepting another coaching position in the NFL. His early departure left some OSU fans angry with him for not finishing-out his contract, but he is still credited with playing a leading role in resurrecting the Beavers.
Erickson left to join a BCS school again in December 2006 after ten months at Idaho. Arizona State athletic director Lisa Love hired Erickson to replace Dirk Koetter as the head football coach on December 9, 2006. The Arizona State job is the third program in the Pac-10 Conference that he has coached.
Arizona State paid Dirk Koetter $2.8 million and a $150,000 buyout to Idaho to complete the hiring of Erickson. He immediately paid dividends at ASU, leading the Sun Devils to a 10-3 record, a share of the Pac-10 title and a berth in the Holiday Bowl in 2007. Erickson was named the Pac-10 Coach of the Year, becoming the first man to ever win the award at three different Pac-10 schools. He also coached another major award winner, as his kicker, Thomas Weber, was named the Lou Groza Award winner. However, the following year, the Sun Devils posted a disappointing 5-7 record, earning neither a bowl berth nor the Territorial Cup, which returned to Tucson for the first time since 2004 after a 31-10 victory by Arizona.
