I spoke with McKinley Boston tonight.
He said that the neither Terry nor Tommy Bowden are candidates to fill the coaching vacancy at NMSU. Both names caused quite a stir and Terry's “no comment” remarks to questions further fueled speculation that he might be interested in the job. Not so, said Boston.
Mike Schultz will be interviewed for the head job. He is currently the offensive coordinator at Texas Christian. Here's the link to Felix's story....
Schultz coaches for a great program in TCU. I still like DeWayne Walker too. Walker still seems to be in the running. He didn't get the nod at San Diego State. I tried calling Walker today at UCLA and the secretary said that he “wasn't in.” In any event, it would be nice getting some comment on him regarding the job.
I still think the Aggies should go with a defensive mind. They're going to lose a lot of offensive players anyway with the departure of Mumme and will have to start from scratch in a lot of respects with a new coach coming in. I'm excited to see who it is but I also know that taking over the NMSU football program is no easy task. It will present its challenges for whoever comes in. They'll have to be the right man for the job.
