A Valley resident with a similar background -- former Arizona Cardinals quarterback and current NFL Network analyst Kurt Warner -- says he's at Edwards' disposal.
Speaking at a Habitat for Humanity event in Surprise on Monday, Warner said he's open to helping Edwards at ASU, in whatever form that might take.
"I’m always willing to help anybody if I can," Warner said. "Knowing Herm, obviously this is a big jump for him, but I know he’s up for the task."
"I just always keep myself open. If there’s anything that I can add or any expertise that I can give, whether it’s a player, an organization, a university, Coach Herm — any of those people."
Warner, who led the Cardinals to their first and only Super Bowl appearance, does have coaching experience: He serves as the offensive coordinator for the football team at Scottsdale Desert Mountain High School, where his son Kade played.
"I’m not back here begging for a job. I’m not looking to be an offensive coordinator at the college level," he said. "I just make myself available (and) if anybody can use me as a resource, I’m happy to do that."
