TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — Sitting in a sparse office that still had pictures leaning against the wall, coach Todd Graham spoke about changing the culture at Arizona State, of adding discipline to a program in need of a healthy dose.
That was in April, just after his first spring game as the Sun Devils' coach.
Nine months later, Graham's office looked more like an entertainment lounge, with a huge TV hanging in the corner, massive leather recliners and colorful photos hanging on the walls.
After an eight-win season that included a comeback over rival Arizona and a bowl blowout, the program he took over has that new and improved look, too.
Graham says, "I think, no doubt, we have laid a solid foundation. I don't think it's dry yet, so by no means have we arrived yet."
