Speak of the Devils

The premier podcast for Sun Devil football.

Dec 8, 2022

To activate the Valley, Arizona State needs leaders who know it well and coaches who know what it takes to establish a winning program.

Charlie Ragle helped build Moon Valley High School into a state champion as an assistant before taking the reins at Chaparral and leading a powerhouse program. While there, he helped guide a young 17-year-old kid named Kenny Dillingham into coaching. Ragle would then go on to coach at two Pac-12 schools before being named Idaho State's head coach last season. But when Dillingham was named ASU's head coach, the opportunity to come back to the desert and help him rebuild the Sun Devil program was too good to pass up.

On this episode, we discuss why he gave up a head coaching job to come back to the Valley, how he set Dillingham on the path to coaching, the staff's plans to activate the Valley, local recruiting strategy, and so much more.
