New Mexico Hires Bob Davie

New Mexico Hires Bob Davie

Hyped by on November 16, 2011 Website:

The New Mexico Lobos set the bar over the last few years for the worst football in the Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS). Mike Locksley went 2-26 over the two and a half years that he was at the helm of the Lobos. Locksley had it rough on and off the field while he was at New Mexico. Physical altercations with coaches, minors getting DWIs in his car, it wasn't good. When New Mexico relieved Locksley of his duties on September 25th it surprised nobody.

So who does New Mexico go out and pick as his replacement? A young up and comer that can motivate the troops and get them playing above their heads? Guess again. The Lobos went with former Notre Dame coach Bob Davie. It really was a very surprising hire. The biggest reason it was a surprise is because he hasn't coached since 2001. That's my biggest gripe. Other than that, I really like this hire. Davie didn't light the world on fire at Notre Dame but he did just as well as the two coaches that have come directly after him..........
