Arizona State's bold move is official.

Herm Edwards is making the transition from ESPN back to coaching and will have to get acquainted with the ins and outs at Arizona State.

What's more, the 63-year-old Edwards is jumping back into the fray under a "New Leadership Model" at Arizona State, where he's the "CEO" of the football program and "will be similar to an NFL approach using a general manager structure".

The news was originally reported on Wednesday by SunDevilSource.com, and was approved by ASU president Michael Crow over the weekend. Edwards previously coached in the National Football League with the New York Jets and Kansas City Chiefs before serving as an analyst at ESPN since 2009.

The announcement, released on ASU's athletics website, comes after reports last week said Edwards would accept the position. "Equally important, the head coach will be a dynamic and tireless recruiter".

Arizona State fired Todd Graham on November 26 after his sixth season at the helm.

Anderson, a former National Football League executive and agent who previously represented Edwards, has made some innovative moves since being hired as Arizona State's AD in 2014.

Yeahhhh ... despite literally being surrounded by tridents and Sparky and about to do work at Sun Devil Stadium, Edwards seems blissfully unaware of the school's mascot. I stand ready for the challenge of working with them to elevate Sun Devil Football. It's a collaborative approach to managing the ASU football program that includes sport and administrative divisions, which will operate as distinct, but collective units focused on elevating all aspects of Sun Devil Football. "I am very excited and humbled to be the Arizona State head football coach".
