DeWayne Walker is considering leaving his job as head coach at New Mexico State just two weeks before Signing Day to take an assistant coach job with the Jacksonville Jaguars, two sources told CBS Tuesday. Walker met with the NFL team Tuesday night to discuss his opportunities.
The 52-year-old Walker has gone 10-40 in his four seasons with the Aggies. Before getting hired at NMSU, Walker had been the defensive coordinator at UCLA. Prior to that, he was a defensive backs coach for the Washington Redskins, New York Giants and New England Patriots. While in the NFL, Walker coached under Joe Gibbs, Pete Carroll and Bill Belichick, among others.
In 2012, the Aggies went 1-11 and were 0-6 in the WAC under Walker. If Walker does leave, NMSU offensive coordinator Doug Martin would likely be in line to get the head coaching job, a source told CBS. The 49-year-old Martin spent seven seasons as the head coach at Kent State, going 29-53.
