"If they can hire a guy better than Jim Leavitt, I hope Arizona State hires him,'' Gruden said on the Doug & Wolf show. "I've had a chance to not only get to know Jim as a friend, but I've spent a lot of time in the last year or two just talking football with him. He's passionate, intense. He's proven. The guy built South Florida from a trailer to No. 2 in the country three years ago. He has a different pizzazz about him. You have to meet him. He's very charismatic. I think he's a tremendous recruiter. I think it'd be an unbelievable coup for Arizona State if they could get him.'
