The website Football Scoop reported Wednesday that Western Illinois Head Football Coach Charlie Fisher has agreed to become the Wide Receivers Coach at Arizona State University. This report comes thirteen days after initial reports had Fisher leaving to take the job at ASU. No comment has been made yet by either the university or Fisher. 


Football Scoop, which is a website that focuses on football coaching job information, notes that Fisher previously coached with new ASU offensive coordinator Rob Likens at Temple. Fisher joins the staff of newly hired Sun Devils Head Coach Herm Edwards. 


When the dust settles on this story, it looks like Western Illinois will be searching for a new coach for the third time since the end of the 2012 season.
