Former offensive analyst Prentice Gill is flying south to join Herm Edwards' coaching staff at ASU. 

Gill announced his departure from Oregon in a post on Instagram. 

"First off I just want to say thank you to the University of Oregon and Coach Cristobal for giving me the best opportunity of a lifetime! I enjoyed every second of it and I could never repay them for who they've been and what they did for me! With that being said I'd like to say thank you to Coach Herm Edwards, @antoniopierce and @sundevilfb for giving me my first Full time position at Arizona State University as the Wide Receivers Coach! I couldn't be happier to join the #sundevilnation and I can't wait to earn my keep and prove them right for taking a chance on me! With all that said, let's move on to the next chapter! #ForksUp." 

Herm Edwards recently announced the firing of offensive coordinator Rob Likens and that he would not be bringing back wide receivers coach Charlie Fisher or tight ends coach Donnie Yantis.

Enter Prentice Gill, who is widely considered to be a talented recruiter. 

Gill's coaching career began in 2012 at Los Angeles Harbor Junior College as the wide receivers coach. He moved to Long Beach Community College before joining USC in 2014 and San Jose in 2015 as a defensive grad assistant. 

In 2014, he spent a year with the Trojans in their football office before joining San Jose State's staff as a defensive graduate assistant.
