Arizona State University officials are denying persistent rumors that newly appointed Sun Devil football coach Todd Graham might resume preseason training at Camp Tontozona. “At this point there are no plans for this,” said ASU Associate Athletic Director Mark Brand. “Coach (Graham) is still trying to hire his staff and finish recruiting off until signing day in February. “That is what he is consumed with right now.” The rumors circulating that ASU might return to Tontozona include innuendos that former Sun Devil offensive lineman Scott Peters, who played seven seasons in the NFL, is lobbying ASU President Michael M. Crow to have the Devils resume training at the camp located east of Payson near Kohl’s Ranch. Peters could not be reached for comment.
