The Sun Devils won't be taking the football field again for a while, but they'll still be showing up in your podcast feed.

Throughout the offseason, the Speak of the Devils Sitdown Series will bring you candid one-on-one conversations with Arizona State players and coaches. I'll go in-depth with each guest on a wide range of topics, from on the field to off, from the deep to the light-hearted. By the end of each episode, I hope you have a greater understanding of the person behind the facemask (or clipboard).

To kick off the series, I sit down with ASU offensive coordinator Rob Likens. He opens up about his upbringing in SEC country, the stress of working for a coach on the hot seat, developing his offensive scheme, math and the ministry, the keys to playcalling and more. Plus, we'll talk about the source of his never-ending energy.
