Arizona State defensive coordinator Phil Bennett will not remain with the program. "While I would have liked for [Bennett] to remain on the coaching staff, I do appreciate the fact that he has chosen not to stay based upon family reasons," coach Herm Edwards said in a statement.

My top priorities right now going forward are to solidify our recruiting class and to assemble a defensive coaching staff. Both objectives are moving along quite well."
