Erickson to face ex-player for 1st time

Posted: Updated:

SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) -- Arizona State football coach Dennis Erickson has done a lot in his career.

But one thing he's never done is coach against one of his ex-players.

That will change Saturday, when the Sun Devils host Washington State.

Erickson spent the 1987 and 1988 seasons coaching Washington State, where Paul Wulff was his starting center.

Erickson says Wulff is the right man to rebuild the Cougar program.
