ABOUT FRANK KUSH

Sometimes mere numbers really tell the story. Over 22 seasons, as the Arizona State football coach, Frank finished with a record of 176-54-1. He took over, in 1958, what was basically a small college program and turned ASU football, by the mid 1970's into a regular top-20 team. For additional Coach Kush career highlights READ MORE >>

With the 2017 passing of Coach Kush, son Dan Kush became Chairman of the Frank Kush Youth Foundation. Danny was a Sun Devil kicker during the mid 1970s and has continued Frank's community work encouraging participation by Arizona youth in health and physical fitness activities. Dan is assisted by Board President Ed Durham, MBA and Andy Dzurinko, CLU, President Emeritus.
