Frank Kush, a member of the 1951 and 1952 Championship Spartan football teams, longtime coach with the Arizona State Sun Devils and College Football Hall of Fame inductee has passed away at age 88 according to a university press-release.

Kush, who played his career at Michigan State under Biggie Munn spent most of his time as a defensive lineman. At 5-9 and only 180 lbs, Kush would have been an undersized at his position in today's college football scene. Yet, he found a way to make his mark on the defensive side of the ball disrupting plays.

After a stint in the Army, Kush joined the coaching staff at Arizona State where as head coach, he amassed a 176-54-1 record and 19 winning seasons during his 22 seasons there

Arizona State honored Kush in 1996 by naming the Sun Devil Stadium playing field after him.
