Lincoln Riley has been one of the most successful head coaches in all of college football over the past few seasons. His all-time record as a coach is 69-13 with no signs of slowing down as he coaches the 5th-ranked team in the country.
Arizona State and first-year head coach Kenny Dillingham is trying to get to that level as well as Arizona State is off to a 1-2 start to the season and he’s building a program that can help them get back to dominance.
Riley offered his thoughts on the first-year coach and he had nothing but love and respect to show for Dillingham in what’s been a tough start to the season.

To Dillingham’s credit, the culture that he’s built at ASU has been tremendous thus far. Although his offense has gotten off to a slow start, his defense ranks top 30 in the country in so many categories as well as top 5 in the Pac-12.
It’s not perfect and all things take time, but from a culture standpoint, things are trending in the right direction for coach Kenny Dillingham and his staff.
Kick-off for Saturday’s game is set at 7:30 PM at Mountain America Stadium.
