Speak of the Devils

The premier podcast for Sun Devil football.

Oct 25, 2021

The makeover of Sun Devil men's basketball was not limited to on the court. This offseason, when Bobby Hurley needed a new lead assistant, he was able to pluck a heralded up and comer from a perennial powerhouse.

Before arriving in Tempe, Joel Justus spent the past 7 seasons at Kentucky, the most recent 5 as an assistant coach. He was a key part in the Wildcats' success, recruiting and developing players like Shai Gilgeous-Alexander. He's now brought that pedigree to Arizona State as he looks to help elevate the Sun Devils into contenders.

On this episode, Justus and I discuss his basketball journey, why ASU was the right move, being Hurley's ballboy as a kid, young Devin Booker, the lessons learned from a coaching icon, how close ASU is to contender status, and much more.
