Jeff Capel has taken himself out of the running for the Arizona State job, a source told ESPN's Jeff Goodman, confirming multiple media reports.

Capel, currently the associate head coach at Duke, had been offered the Sun Devils' head job, sources previously told ESPN.

Capel had met with Arizona State officials and was tentatively scheduled to visit the campus this week, reported.

However, for the time being, he will remain with the national champion Blue Devils and head coach Mike Krzyzewski.

Arizona State is looking to fill its vacancy following the firing of Herb Sendek after nine seasons with the Sun Devils, who went 18-16 and missed the NCAA tournament this year.

Capel, 40, was formerly the head coach at VCU and Oklahoma.
