Former Arizona State Sun Devils assistant Chris Ball has been named the new head football coach at Northern Arizona.
Ball served as safeties coach and co-defensive coordinator at ASU under then-head coach Todd Graham from 2012-15. He served as the defensive coordinator at Memphis the last three seasons.
Ball will replace Jerome Souers, who stepped down as Lumberjacks head coach after 21 seasons at the helm.
NAU GOT A GREAT ONE!! I’m so happy for my guy!! Nobody is more deserving of a head coaching job. I can’t wait to drive up and watch your team! https://t.co/kTKvfw1yJJ
