Reports say ASU’s Erickson is done

ASU football head coach Dennis Erickson is expected to be fired this morning, The Arizona Republic’s Doug Haller reported on Sunday.

The Sun Devils haven’t reached a bowl since 2007, when they won a co-Pac-10 championship in Erickson’s first season at the school. ASU is bowl eligible at 6-6 this season but lost five of its last six games after being expected to win the Pac-12 South Division this season.

“As of tonight, ASU athletic director Lisa Love plans to meet w/ Dennis Erickson on Monday morning, when he be will relieved of his duties,” Haller tweeted.

The Sun Devils still controlled their own destiny in the conference heading into last week’s game with Arizona, but the Wildcats overcame a 27-17 fourth-quarter deficit to win 31-27.

ASU finishes the regular season on a four-game losing skid. Its opponents were UCLA, Washington State, UA, and California, who have a 21-27 combined record.
