ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Former Norte Dame coach Bob Davie was introduced Thursday as New Mexico's 31st head coach. He's replacing Mike Locksley, who was fired mid-season after a nearly three-year tenure that was mostly marked by losses and off-field problems.
Davie is inheriting a program that has lost 35 of its last 38 games.
He says his first mission is to stabilize the program and change the culture. Getting the program back on track won't be easy, but he believes it can be done.
Davie and university officials are still working on the details of his six-year contract. He will be paid $700,000 the first year and $760,000 for each of the remaining years. Various incentives are also part of the deal.
