The latest episode of The Sun Devil Source Report Podcast continues an offseason series that is a little different from our normal podcasts. We are providing our audience with a bit of a treat in the form interviews that Sun Devil Source publisher Chris Karpman conducted with Arizona State assistant coaches. The fifth episode of this series is from Karpman's recent conversation with ASU first-year offensive assistant coach Derek Hagan, who works with tight ends and wide receivers. As you'll hear, Hagan discusses how important it was for the wide receivers and tight ends to get seven practices in during spring ball before the coronavirus halted ASU’s spring program. Hagan is entering his second season under Herm Edwards, and first as a full-time position coach. He was hired to Edwards’ staff in April of 2018 as an offensive analyst. He played wide receiver for the Sun Devils from 2002-05, when he appeared in 50 games across four seasons and finished his career as one of the most successful receivers in school and conference history. Following last season, ASU lost its starting tight end Tommy Hudson to graduation and saw reserve Jared Bubak announce his transfer to walk-on at Nebraska, where he grew up. Sophomore tight end Nolan Matthews played quite a bit last year and appears to be in line to lead the position group. Matthews and senior wide receiver convert Curtis Hodges are the only two returning scholarship tight ends on the roster and will be joined by high school signees Jake Ray and Ryan Morgan before the start of this season. The former ASU standout also gave perspective on why he decided to get involved with coaching.
