The fact that Chris Pompey looks to be coming back to NMSU isn’t a surprise at all. When Herb Pope restated his commitment it was fairly obvious that Pompey, and his presence at NMSU, had a lot to do with it.
The futures of Gus Hauser and Damon Archibald should shake out fairly soon. Frankly, I have a hard time seeing Archibald back. When he didn’t get hired as coach he took it hard. And you have to figure that Menzies needs to bring in at least one assistant from the outside. Both Pompey and Archibald are two big personalities, and it could be hard for Menzies to make an imprint with both of them around. Hauser seems like a toss up but I would say that there’s a decent chance that he comes back in some capacity. We’ll see how it shakes out
