Arizona State football hires Glenn Thomas as OC, QB coach

TEMPE, Ariz. -- Arizona State football has hired veteran NFL and college assistant coach Glenn Thomas as offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach.

The school announced Thomas' hiring Monday, three days after offensive coordinator Zak Hill resigned amid an NCAA investigation into alleged recruiting violations.

Thomas has coached for more than 20 years, including seven years with the NFL's Atlanta Falcons. He spent four years as an offensive assistant with Atlanta and three working with Pro Bowler Matt Ryan as quarterbacks coach.

Thomas spent the past two seasons as quarterbacks coach at UNLV and previously worked under Matt Rhule at Baylor and Temple. Thomas also served as an assistant coach at Midwestern State and with the Baltimore Ravens and Jacksonville Jaguars.
