SotD Sitdown Series - Chris Claiborne

When Antonio Pierce assumed the role as Arizona State's sole defensive coordinator, he left a vacancy at linebackers coach. The Sun Devils filled that spot with a former All-American and Butkus Award winner.

Chris Claiborne brings a substantial resume to Tempe. He's one of the greatest defenders in USC history, had a productive run in the NFL after being a top 10 draft pick, and was a successful high school coach before making the move to the college ranks.

We discuss why he came to ASU, the dynamic of recruiting southern California, the 2021 linebackers, his coaching aspirations and influences, spring ball impressions, and much more.
