Former ASU WR Kerry Taylor Calls For Dennis Erickson's Ouster

This story is a classic example of how quickly information can spread over the internet.

Kerry Taylor was a wide receiver at ASU for four seasons. I met him when he was a freshman and I was a junior when I worked at the ASU student-athlete computer lab. He was actually very nice and genuine when other athletes were more abrasive.

According to Taylor's twitter account, he recently completed an interview with channel 3 in Phoenix to discuss Dennis Erickson and other issues surrounding the Sun Devils.

Take a look at the tweet below:

Just did an interview about the problems of ASU football and why Dennis Erickson is NOT the right man for the job.less than a minute ago via Echofon Favorite Retweet Reply

 

Then, he goes on to say this:

I want ASU to win Pac12 Championships, all us ASU fans do. But in order for that to happen we need a new Head Coach. That's all I'm saying.less than a minute ago via Echofon Favorite Retweet Reply

 

This type of distraction is hardly what the team needs, and after Taylor's younger brother plans to attend the University of Washington rather than ASU, you can't help but wonder if this is just a case of sour grapes or if his issues are valid.

Until the interview airs, we cannot say for certain. In my opinion, it was poor form for Taylor to come forward on the internet before the full interview aired, as it would allow for us to draw our own conclusions based on his entire story, rather than just on his brief tweets.

Years ago, this would never have happened. Taylor might have had his day on the news, but the rampant speculation and unwarranted attention would have been minimized. 

But still, a local product badmouthing his former team? It's never a good thing.

UPDATE, 2:15 PM Sunday: Tim Ring of 3TV has tweeted about the interview as well:

A lot of people are asking about the Kerry Taylor interview. This will NOT air on Ch 3 tonight. Coach Erickson will get time to respond.less than a minute ago via web Favorite Retweet Reply

And:

The interview will be properly vetted with both sides getting a fair chance to have their say. The piece tentatively will air NEXT Sunday.less than a minute ago via web Favorite Retweet Reply

 

From the looks of things, Kerry must have made some strong accusations. Until this is aired, all we can do is wait.
