The ASU press release is here. Arizona State is one of those historically more regional schools with a very good eye for faculty talent and one that is chronically underranked by U.S. News (others similarly situated--sharp eye for faculty talent and underranked by U.S. News--would include the University of Arizona, Florida State, Chicago-Kent, San Diego, George Mason, and Cardozo, among others). ASU made enormous progress under Berman's predecessor, Patricia White. ASU is probably a school to watch in the coming years.
