TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — Arizona State has promoted offensive coordinator Mike Norvell to deputy head coach.

One of the top young assistants in college football, Norvell had been mentioned as a possible candidate for numerous head coaching jobs, but Sun Devils head coach Todd Graham pushed hard to keep him in the desert.

The 32-year-old Norvell has led an offense that amassed over 12,000 yards and 1,000 points in two seasons, most in a two-year span at Arizona State since 1972-73.

This season, the Sun Devils set a school record by scoring 50 points six times and their offense finished ninth in scoring and 29th in total offense.

Arizona State won 10 games this season and will face Texas Tech in the Holiday Bowl on Dec. 30.
