For what it is worth. Pretty impressive for a 29yo.
Lashlee comes to ASU after serving as the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach in 2011 at Samford, where he installed a high-tempo offense that improved the Bulldog's national ranking in total offense from No. 57 in the nation to No. 36 over the course of just one year. Samford's offense averaged 17 points per game the year prior to Lashlee's arrival, but put 28 points per game on the scoreboard in 2011 to help the Bulldogs improve their record from 4-7 to 6-5.
Under Lashlee's direction, Samford averaged 391 yards per game just one year after averaging 355. The Bulldogs also averaged 255 passing yards per game to rank No. 45 nationally, while they were ranked No. 72 in 2010 with 179 yards per game. Lashlee's offense also averaged 166 rushing yards per game, good enough to rank among the top 50 teams in the nation as well.
The Bulldogs posted a 4-4 Southern Conference record in 2011, matching their best ever as a member of the league. Samford broke the school record for points scored in a league game with 52 against Western Carolina as Lashlee helped the school jump from No. 100 in the nation in scoring offense to No. 43.
Lashlee coached Samford wide receiver Kelsey Pope, who broke the school record for receptions in a game with 17 in 2011. Under Lashlee’s leadership, quarterback Dustin Taliaferro broke Samford's career record completions during the 2011 campaign as well.
Nice piece of reporting... hopefully it's relevant in a week or so!
Bumping it up since it is now official.
