Arizona State has made a strong statement to the value of in-state high school and also taking care of one of their own.
Yantis had success as head coach at Arizona Christian University and Paradise Valley high school. He is known through-out the Arizona high school and Junior College coaching community as a genuine, well-respected, sharp football mind.
Congratulations to @donnieyantis, who has been named Assistant Coach and Recruiting Coordinator for Sun Devil Football!
