Rodriguez was on ASU’s staff the past 3 seasons as the Sun Devils’ defensive line coach. He was hired by former head coach Herm Edwards in 2020 and remained through the 2022 season. In November, Rodriguez tweeted that he would be looking for another opportunity as new coach Kenny Dillingham opted to go in a new direction:
Full of Gratitude to Sun Devil Nation for these past 3 Years.
We have loved making this our Home and making tremendous Friends
Coach Dillingham has been 1st Class and we wish him the absolute best.
To our Players, We Love y’all
One Last time from Team Rodriguez..
