What’s old about NAU?

Entering its fourth season under former ASU defensive coordinator Chris Ball, Northern Arizona has gotten most of its offense back.

That offense features running back Kevin Daniels, who rushed for 1,146 yards a year ago and was 13th in FBS with an average of 128.7 yards per game. NAU quarterback RJ Martinez also returns after throwing 14 touchdowns and two interceptions in eight games as a freshman last season.

Ball served under former ASU assistant Mike Norvell in Memphis for three years before coming to NAU. Before that, in 2012-15, he was at Arizona State serving as defensive coordinator for the passing game and safety coach.
