Speak of the Devils

The premier podcast for Sun Devil football.

Jun 13, 2022

It's been an eventful year for Bobby Wade.

One of the greatest high school players in Arizona history who went on to be one of the most productive receivers in Arizona Wildcats history, Wade had crossed Territorial Cup lines in recent years to work in a couple of different roles on Arizona State's staff. However, once news of the NCAA investigation broke last offseason, ASU placed wide receivers coach Prentice Gill on leave and Wade was elevated to take over the group on an interim basis.

Following the 2021 season, the interim tag was removed and Wade was made the program's permanent wide receivers coach. Now headed into 2022, Wade is overseeing a significant rebuilding effort of the position. After a back half of the season that saw major passing game struggles, the Sun Devil lost 5 scholarship receivers, including the three top targets from a year ago. Add in a brand new offensive coordinator and scheme, a brand new to be determined QB, and the Sun Devil passing game has a lot of questions to answer this fall. Will Wade's talented but collectively inexperienced group be able to step up?
On this episode, we discuss the impact of the departures, how the returning receivers are looking to step up, developing a rapport with new QBs, beating his alma mater yet again, and much more.
