Unless Herm resigns to help shelter the team against sanctions arising out of the alleged recruiting violations....
I am thinking Herm will be back next year. It looks like the season should turn out on the upswing, knock on wood.
Not meeting expectations, but still getting a winning 7+ games and getting a bowl game is not a solid basis for firing someone, despite the many problems that need to be corrected that get us all upset.
If this is the way this plays out, ASU would avoid paying out funds for another coach who is not actually coaching, and plan out for a possible replacement when Herm's contract expires.
Barring a complete meltdown prior to 2025 that could result in his ouster, if his contract expires without ASU reaching the lofty goals that were set when he was hired, it would be expected that his contract would not be renewed.
With so many PAC12 schools looking for coaches, this may put us in a better position down the road.
