Josh Henson to replace Thomsen as Arizona State offensive line coach

Arizona State moved quickly to hire its next offensive line coach, Josh Henson.

Josh Henson, who served as an offensive analyst at Oklahoma State in 2016, is expected to replace Chris Thomsen as Arizona State's offensive line coach. 

ASU head coach Todd Graham and offensive coordinator Chip Lindsey acted very quickly to line up a replacement for Thomsen, who just accepted an offensive position at his alma mater Texas Christian. 

The Arizona Republic was first to report Henson's pending hire, which is expected to be announced by the school next week. 

In Henson the Sun Devils are adding a coach with experience as an offensive coordinator and recruiting coordinator. Before joining the Cowboys last year Henson worked at Missouri for seven seasons, including as offensive coordinator from 2013-15. 

Earlier in his career Henson was the tight ends coach and recruiting coordinator at Oklahoma State from 2001-04 and at LSU from 2005-08. 

A former offensive linemen who had 37 career starts at Oklahoma State, Henson was second-team all-conference in 1997. 

ASU is still looking to hire a replacement for DelVaughn Alexander, who left the program earlier this week to coach wide receivers at Notre Dame. 

With the exception of linebackers coach Keith Patterson, Graham has been forced to replace his entire staff since the conclusion of the 2014 season.
