Former Colts coach Frank Kush dies at 88

Kush, who is the namesake of the field at Sun Devil Stadium, served as the school's coach from 1958-79, holding a 176-54-1 record, while leading the team to seven WAC and two Border Conference championships. Kush was a part of the ASU family since 1955 and served in many roles over the years, most recently as an ambassador for Sun Devil Athletics. In a key game vs. Purdue, Kush recovered a fumble and helped limit the Boilermakers to just 31 rushing yards.

Dan Kush, the coach's oldest son, told The Arizona Republic that his father suffered from dementia. He was named national Coach of the Year after a ideal 12-0 season in 1975, one of two undefeated seasons for his ASU teams.

The coach ended his tenure at Arizona State after punter Kevin Rutledge claimed Kush shook his face mask and punched him during a game in 1978.

Kush coached the Fort Benning football team during a stint in the U.S. Army. Kush also spent one season as head coach of the Hamilton Tiger-Cats of the Canadian Football League. That includes a 6-1 mark in bowl games, including four Fiesta Bowl victories in five years beginning in 1971.
