Jamar Allah said he'll keep a close eye on the Arizona State coaching situation especially after reports surfaced this weekend that coach Dennis Erickson will not be retained.
"I talked to some coaches on the coaching staff and they said it was the media saying that," Allah said. "I have trust in that and I'm going to stick around and stay with ASU.
"I have no clue what's going to happen. I've talked to them and they said it was the media so I'm not really sure because I was reading up on things and it was talking about a new coach so I'm just waiting to see what happens."

Allah is a 6-foot-1, 180-pound cornerback from Phoenix (Ariz.) North Canyon who committed to the Sun Devils in late September when things were going well for Arizona State.
At that point in the season, the Sun Devils had just beaten USC and would win two more games to go to 5-1. But in the last month the bottom fell out for Arizona State with four-straight losses to UCLA, Washington State, Arizona and Cal.
Allah said if there is a coaching change he would be open to looking at other programs. So far, Colorado, Wyoming and Montana have also offered him. Since he's been committed, Allah said he hasn't talked at all to other programs.
"I really like ASU but I might just have to look around because anything could happen," Allah said. "I don't know if they'd pull my scholarship so that's something to look at.
"I haven't really even been talking to other schools since I committed so it will be interesting. I've only been talking to ASU and going to the games and doing things like that."
Allah said before he makes any decisions about his future he's going to wait to see what happens at Arizona State. According to the latest reports Sunday night, Erickson will likely not be coaching the Sun Devils next season.
