Arizona State University just gave potential NCAA Division-1 golf prospects a very, very good reason to choose to be a Sun Devil, as I Love Golf Daily has learned from numerous sources that Phil Mickelson has accepted a position with the coaching staff at the prestigious athletic school.

Phil Mickelson, PGA Tour star and former NCAA champion, has joined the coaching staff at Arizona State, Golfweek has learned. Mickelson has been named an interim assistant coach for the Sun Devils, a position that opened in September when assistant coach Joe Princeleft the program.
