NMSU Aggies Tab Doug Martin as Interim Head Coach

With DeWayne Walker’s abrupt move to Jacksonville, NMSU Athletic Director, Dr. McKinley Boston, wasted little time finding his replacement.

Offensive coordinator Doug Martin was named interim head coach earlier today.  Before bolting for Boston College in 2012, Martin served as NMSU’s offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach in 2011.  Martin was also head coach of Kent State from 2004-2010.

Martin’s Aggies were 47th in total offense and 26th in passing offense in 2011.  In 2012, the Aggies slipped to 102nd in total offense.

Martin told the media:

“I’m really excited about the possibilities here at New Mexico State.  Obviously, NM State is a place I firmly believe in and that’s the reason why I came back. I feel there is unlimited potential for this football program and for Las Cruces as a city to take ownership of this team. I want to bring this team and this community together and make this the best football program I can as long as I’m the interim head coach and hopefully the head coach in the future.”

Obviously, winning at NMSU is no easy task, but Martin certainly seems up for the challenge.
