New Mexico fired head coach Mike Locksley in September, and now nearly two months later it seems the school has found Locksley's replacement. According to the school's official Twitter feed, former Notre Dame head coach Bob Davie will be New Mexico's new head coach..
New Mexico also tweeted a few minutes later that the press conference will be on Thursday, not Wednesday.
Davie spent five seasons as Notre Dame's head coach from 1997 to 2001, and went 35-25 in that span, with an 0-3 record in bowl games. His stint in South Bend was his first as a head coach, and he hasn't coached anywhere since, instead deciding to work in television.
What drove Davie to want to get back into head coaching nearly a decade later, I'm not sure, but even if he is rusty, he can't do much worse than Locksley did at New Mexico. Locksley went 2-26 at New Mexico and caused more headlines off the field than on it.
