ASU hires Patrick Suddes as assistant athletics director for recruiting
"I'm excited to come to Arizona State and work under a great teacher and leader like Coach Graham," Suddes said in a statement. "I have been fortunate to work for two future Hall of Fame coaches in Nick Saban and Mack Brown, and it is clear coach Graham is in the same mold as them. My professional background began in the Southeast and the state of Texas, and to be able to combine that knowledge with the abundance of talent that lies in Arizona and throughout the West Coast is a perfect fit for me. ASU, with its great campus, loyal fan base and dedicated staff, offers endless opportunities and I¹m looking forward to helping the program grow in all capacities. I am fully on board the Boom Bus and ready to throw up my first Pitchfork."
Suddes spent one year at Texas. Before that, he worked under Nick Saban at his alma mater, the University of Alabama, for seven years, including five as the associate director of football operations.
During his time on the job, the Crimson Tide won three BCS national championships.
