ASU Football: Recently hired OL coach Henson returning to Oklahoma State

Another opening presents itself on the Sun Devils’ staff.

Todd Graham’s staff appeared to finally be assembled, however there’s been a snag.

The Arizona State Sun Devils are losing offensive line and assistant head coach Josh Henson to his alma mater, Oklahoma State, where he’ll serve as an offensive line coach.

Henson was hired by ASU on Jan. 17 as a replacement for Chris Thomsen who, like Henson, left his post in Tempe to return to his alma mater Texas Christian.

The Cowboys fired offensive line coach Greg Adkins a week ago, making way for Henson to become a likely target for the opening having served on Oklahoma State’s staff as an offensive analyst and recruiting coordinator last season.

The loss comes a month before the Sun Devils will begin spring football activities. Henson’s duties with ASU were expected to include acting as a co-offensive coordinator alongside Bill Napier, who was recently hired from Alabama.
