New Arizona State Sun Devils Head Coach Herm Edwards is targeting David Gibbs to be his new defensive coordinator. The duo have previously worked together in the NFL.

Gibbs was most recently with the Texas Tech Red Raiders. He served as their defensive coordinator.

The 49-year-old North Carolina native has spent the past three seasons with the Red Raiders. He made $800,000 this past season — and it may take a raise to pry him away from his current position.

When Edwards as a head coach in the NFL, Gibbs worked with him from 2006 through 2008 with the Kansas City Chiefs. Gibbs was Edwards’ defensive coach at the time.

The Sun Devils defensive coordinator job became available when Phil Bennett announced recently that he would not return. There’s a very good likelihood that Bennett joins Jimbo Fisher’s staff at Texas A&M.

Gibbs was the Houston Cougars interim head coach prior to joining Kliff Kingsbury’s staff at Texas Tech. He guided the Cougars to a 35-34 win over the Pittsburgh Panthers, who also had an interim head coach in the game, in the Lockheed Martin Armed Forced Bowl on January 2nd, 2015.

He also spent two seasons as the Cougars defensive coordinator. He spent the 2012 season as the Virginia Destroyers defensive backs coach.

After spending a year away from the game, he was the Houston Texans defensive backs coach in 2009 and 2010. He was the aforementioned Chiefs defensive backs coach from 2006 through 2008.

He also spent a season in 2005 as the Auburn Tigers defensive coordinator. From 2001 through 2004, he worked with the Denver Broncos — initially as their safeties coach before being their defensive backs coach.

From 1991 through 2000, he worked for several college football teams — initially as a graduate assistant with the Oklahoma Sooners and Colorado Buffaloes — before accepting his first official coaching job with the Kansas Jayhawks. He also served time as the Minnesota Golden Gophers defensive coordinator.
