Former Arizona Wildcat Antonio Pierce is the new linebackers coach for the arch-rival Arizona State Sun Devils, the school announced.

The news broke a day after Pierce confirmed he would be stepping down as the head coach at Long Beach Poly High.

Pierce, 39, will work alongside new head man Herm Edwards in Tempe. The two have worked together at ESPN since 2010.

"Antonio has not only competed at the highest level of football as a linebacker himself in the NFL for nearly a decade, but he has also coached at the highest level of high school football in his time at Long Beach Poly,” Edwards said in a statement. “He will be a valuable addition to our staff and someone we expect to immediately have an impact on our program."

Despite going undrafted out of Arizona in 2001, Pierce spent nine seasons in the NFL and is most known for his five-year stint with the New York Giants, which included a Pro Bowl appearance in 2006 and a Super Bowl XLII ring in 2007.

He retired in 2010 and became Long Beach Poly’s head coach in 2014.

Pierce spent the 2000 season with the Wildcats after transferring in from Mount San Antonio College. Pierce tallied three sacks, 77 tackles (10 for loss), two forced fumbles, one interception, and one blocked kick in his lone year in Tucson.

Arizona has an ASU alum on its coaching staff in defensive line coach Vince Amey.

A late field goal with five seconds left in the fourth quarter gave Missouri a 48-45 victory over Devwah Whaley and his Arkansas Men’s Football teammates inside Razorback Stadium.

Arkansas head football coach Bret Bielema was then dismissed by the University of Arkansas, it was announced by Interim Athletics Director Julie Cromer Peoples. Bielema completed his fifth season as the Razorbacks’ head coach on Friday

Senior quarterback Austin Allen faked the hand off to Whaley and rolled left for a one-yard touchdown run, giving the Razorbacks an early 7-0 lead over Missouri. The score was Allen’s third-career rushing touchdown and first this season.

Allen registered his second touchdown of the game with a 57-yard strike to redshirt freshman Jordan Jones who hauled in the third touchdown of his career. The score was the 35th-career passing touchdown for Allen. In addition to his rushing touchdown in the first quarter, the Fayetteville, Arkansas native finished 14-of-29 with 313 yards with two touchdowns through the air.

The Razorbacks retook the lead late in the third quarter as sophomore Devwah Whaley capped off a nine-play, 77-yard drive with a 28-yard touchdown. Whaley has scored a touchdown in six-straight games. He finished with 55 yards on 11 attempts.

On his third overall touchdown on the afternoon, David Williams took a screen pass 24 yards to give Arkansas the lead once again. It marked the second time this season Williams had three touchdowns in a single game.

Sophomore Connor Limpert evened the score late in the fourth quarter off of a 42-yard field goal to improve to 8-of-9 on the season.

George Roberts and his Delta State University Football teammates rushed for a 344 yards, led by quarterback Breck Ruddick's 164-yard effort and Chris Robinson's 144-yard afternoon, and Delta used 14 straight fourth-quarter points to secure a 45-35 victory over the Bowie State Bulldogs at Bulldogs Stadium in Bowie, Maryland.

Delta State opened the scoring with a 28-yard field goal from Vince Sciorrotta at the 8:28 mark of the first quarter to take a 3-0 lead.

Bowie State responded with a 10-play, 87-yard drive that quarterback Amir Hall capped with a two-yard touchdown pass to Lansana Sesay as the Bulldogs grabbed a 7-3 lead.

Delta State answered the call by rattling off 28 straight points on their next four drives as DSU took a 31-7 lead with 2:54 to go in the first half of play.

Junior quarterback Breck Ruddick's first touchdown of the afternoon gave Delta State the lead back at 10-7 with 2:15 to play in the first quarter, and after the defense forced a three-and-out, senior Kam Myers hauled in one of only four completed passes by DSU in the game for a 15-yard touchdown that gave the Green-and-White a 17-7 lead after one quarter.

The Statesmen continued to keep their foot on the gas pedal to open the second stanza, as a 41-yard touchdown scamper by Ruddick and a 32-yard touchdown rush from Chris Robinson put the Statesmen on top 31-7 with 2:54 left in the half.

The Bulldogs took the ensuing kickoff and covered 59 yards in 11 plays, and Amir Hall found Brandon Britton from 13 yards out to cut the lead down to 17, 31-14, where it would remain as the first half came to a close.

The third quarter belonged to the homestanding Bulldogs, who put up 21 unanswered third quarter points to storm back and take a 35-31 lead as the two teams headed to the final stanza.

Bowie State got an Amir Hall rushing score from two-yards out at the 9:28 mark of the third quarter to pull within 10, 31-21, and forced a Statesmen fumble on the ensuing kickoff to set up a Robert Chesson one-yard touchdown run just 24 seconds later to pull within three points at 31-28.

Just over four minutes later, Amir Hall led a 6-play, 71-yard drive that he punctuated himself on a 14-yard touchdown rush, his second of the game, and the Bulldogs carried the 35-31 lead into the final quarter of action.

Delta State leaned on Chris Robinson in the final stanza, and the senior back responded with a pair of 3-yard touchdown runs as the Statesmen outscored the Bulldogs 14-0 in the fourth to secure the win.

Robinson scored the go-ahead touchdown with 5:58 left in the fourth, and then helped ice the game away as the Statesmen drove 97 yards on just six plays to take a 45-35 lead that proved to be the final score.
