Arizona State: Dennis Erickson just announced that OC Rich Olson will not return.
"It really has nothing to do with what he (Olson) did or didn't do," Erickson said. "It's more about change and trying to get some new ideas. Rich Olson is a good coach, always has been and always will be. I needed to make a change. Our failings offensively had more to do with everybody involved, not just one person by any means."
"He's a good coach and has done a good job," Erickson said. "Our problems are not because of him, believe me. I want people to understand that."
Texas State: What are you hearing? Email or text us
