Roundup: New sheriff in Tempe

Sun Devil Athletics

Arizona State

Arizona State hired Bobby Hurley as its new men’s basketball coach Thursday. Hurley took Buffalo to the NCAA tournament this year, nearly pulling off an upset against West Virginia.

USC

Former USC football great and Pittsburgh Steelers safety Troy Polamalu has decided to retire, calling it a career after a fantastic 12 years in the NFL.

Arizona

Arizona football has its spring game Friday night at 6 p.m. PT on Pac-12 Networks, and Mike Yam and the gang preview Arizona’s spring game.

Stanford

Stanford’s spring game is Saturday (1 p.m. PT, Pac-12 Networks), so David Lombardi wrote up a Stanford spring game viewer’s guide for our enjoyment.

Oregon State

Oregon State quarterback Luke Del Rio is transferring, coach Gary Andersen announced Thursday. He went 8-for-18 for 141 yards in three games in 2014 after transferring to Oregon State from Alabama.

Oregon

Don Banks of Sports Illustrated thinks the San Diego Chargers will trade up to take Marcus Mariota at No. 2 in the 2015 NFL draft. The Tennessee Titans currently have the No. 2 pick.

UCLA

Good feature from Kevin Gemmell on UCLA defensive coordinator Tom Bradley, who spent nearly 40 years at Penn State as a player and coach.

Washington State

Hear from Washington State baseball catcher J.J. Hancock after the Cougars beat Washington 3-2 in the series opener Thursday night.

California

Jeff Faraudo lets us know that the Cal football coaches are concerned about their options at safety. The Cal defensive backs didn’t exactly have a stellar 2014, and it doesn’t help that four safeties are sitting out the spring to get healthy.

Colorado

Indiana Pacers forward Chris Copeland apologized for making a “bad choice” by staying out too late before a game. The former Buff was stabbed outside a nightclub in New York City but is now in stable condition.

Utah

Matthew Piper whips up this article on Utah safety Jason Thompson, who played a big role in a trick play on the first snap from scrimmage in Utah’s 45-10 romp of Colorado State at the Las Vegas Bowl.

Washington

Mason Kelley features the Washington sand volleyball team, which is in its second season of existence (2014 was more of a “trial run,” as Kelley puts it). The Dawgs are 5-0 in the sand thus far in 2015 and wrap up their season this weekend.
