Bobby Hurley Adds Jerrance Howard to ASU Coaching Staff

Arizona State University head basketball coach Bobby Hurley is interviewed on TNT's pregame broadcast Men's before the NCAA national championship game at State Farm Stadium.

On Friday, Jerrance Howard was officially hired as an assistant coach for Arizona State under head coach Bobby Hurley.

During the 2023-24 season, Howard was on the coaching staff at Southern Illinois after previous stints with the Kansas Jayhawks (2013-21) and Texas Longhorns (2021-23).

The Salukis finished the season with a 19-13 overall record, placing sixth in the Missouri Valley Conference.


Along with that, Howard spent a season (2012) coaching under Larry Brown at SMU as a top assistant, so he brings experiences competing in several Division I conferences to Arizona State. ASU lost a top assistant this offseason, Jermaine Kimbrough who left for Grand Canyon.

Hurley secured a five-star commit from Jayden Quaintance, the No. 9 prospect in the Class of 2024, according to 247Sports. The 6-foot-9 center originally committed to the Kentucky Wildcats, but after Former Head Coach John Calipari left for Arkansas, he reopened his commitment.

The Sun Devils struggled last season, finishing with a record of 14-18, which placed them ninth in the Pac-12. The 2024-25 season will be ASU’s first season competing in the Big 12 Conference.

The team’s biggest win came against No. 21 Washington State, where the Sun Devils defeated the Cougars 73-61 on Feb. 24.
