Arizona State announced the hiring of former Michigan State assistant Diron Reynolds as the new defensive line coach.

Reynolds was previously the D-Line Coach at Michigan State last year but has been coaching the position for over 24 years. He has coached at top college programs like Stanford and Oklahoma and in the NFL with the Vikings, Dolphins, and Colts.
Reynolds will replace Vince Amey, who is staying on board as an analyst.
The D-Line was decent last year but struggled mightily at the end due to injuries. Guys like BJ Green, Prince Dorbah, and Dashaun Mallory led that D-Line to fantastic performances, including a seven-sack game versus Colorado. However, Reynolds brings in a veteran presence and someone who can recruit. This is a fantastic hire by Dillingham and Brian Ward.
