Derek Hagan ended his college career as the Pac-12’s all-time leader in receptions. The Arizona State alum will now return to campus to coach on the sideline.
Arizona State announced on Thursday that the former wide receiver will join the Sun Devils’ staff as an offensive analyst.
“We are extremely pleased to be adding Derek Hagan to our coaching staff,” Arizona State coach Herm Edwards said, via the school’s athletic department. “I am enthusiastic about what Derek brings to the table as not only one of the greatest receivers in school history, but as a former NFL player as well. He will be a valuable asset to our staff.”
Hagan played at Arizona State from 2002-2005. He ranks second all-time in the conference with 3,939 receiving yards and broke five school records while playing for the Sun Devils.
The Miami Dolphins selected Hagan in the third-round draft of the 2006 NFL Draft. He played for the Dolphins, New York Giants, Buffalo Bills, Oakland Raiders and Tennessee Titans during his nine year NFL career. The wideout compiled 148 receptions for 1,734 and 7 touchdowns in the NFL.
Hagan will certainly be able to help out all the receivers at Arizona State as an offensive analyst.
