If there is one coach Greg McMackin is linked with more than June Jones, it’s Dennis Erickson. And if Arizona State beats Arizona in their regular-season finale, it will probably be Erickson’s Sun Devils (or Arizona) in the Hawaii Bowl against UH. McMackin was Erickson’s defensive coordinator with the Miami Hurricanes, Seattle Seahawks and San Francisco 49ers. They also coached together at Idaho and San Jose State, and matched wits in the 1999 Hawaii Bowl, when McMackin was UH defensive coordinator and Erickson was the head coach for Oregon State.
