DeWayne Walker

I just bumped into DeWayne Walker at Hotel Encanto in Las Cruces.

He gave me his cell phone number and told me to call him tomorrow. I asked if he was taking the NMSU coaching job and he just laughed, walked away, and said "I'll talk to you tomorrow."

They're supposed to announce the hire Tuesday morning. Nobody will go on the record with it. I thought I would try to hunt down DeWayne. I did, but he didn't have much to say. At this point, it seems like a foregone conclusion that he will be the next coach at NMSU. I think most of us have known that for some time.

Talk about being at the right place at the right time!

I think it's a given that he's our coach.
So what does Coach Walker bring to the NMSU table?
Toughness, winning, and having a rapport with the students and community are a MUST!!

Welcome home, Coach! Go Aggies!

I don't think I'm behind the 8-ball 9:16. If you were in my position, you wouldn't have done any better. Trust me on that one.

Look, if you're so in the doghouse with the AD that you can't get an answer to a simple question, it's time to move to a different community and get a different job. Your ignorance is not amusing.

Teddy,
The LA papar repored it before you did, and Jeff Simbieda in ALbuquerque was talking about it early this morning that he confired it from a great source since last night. YOu are behind the 8 ball!!!

A look back...
"Hello, Dr. Boston I represent the Birmingham News. Can you tell me if Jim McElwain is one of your finalists? No? It's just a bad rumor? How come your local paper didn't report this? Hello... Dr. Boston... are you laughing?"

"Hello, Dr. Boston this is Randy Harrison. I was calling about your 3 candidates and... what? There is only 2? How come Teddy is reporting you have 2 and a mystery guy? Are you laughing?... Dr. Boston, hello?"

"Hi Dr. Boston it's Teddy.... Dr. Boston.... why are you laughing? (click)
