Very hard to watch this video and not be excited about this hire. I really believe Willie is going to do some amazing things at ASU.
Don't be surprised to see a couple of big name hires in the coming days. He is going to instill a work effort, both physical and mental that we have not seen here in 7 years. Attention to detail and focus on what is means to be a Sun Devil baseball player will be his trademarks.
I suspect we will see some transfers, but on the whole, we will be a much better team next year. Instead of making himself the focus he will be focusing the players on playing for ASU and their teammates. They may not realize it right now but this is one of the biggest gifts he can give them.
Instead of self-made videos proclaiming he is "the most interesting coach in the world" he will be teaching them what it takes to be a complete player. Instead of making tweets about the TV series he has been binge watching he will be breaking down practice tape on his players and ASU's opponents. Instead of allowing his family access to the locker room he will be bringing in, and possibly retaining, coaches that will be singularly focused on making the players better.
This is night and day and I could not be happier about this hire. Can't wait for the home season opener next year. Already know where I will be!
Go Sun Devils!
