Through Twitter, McManus accepts NMSU's offensive coordinator position
Jerry McManus will be the next offensive coordinator for the New Mexico State University football team.
This according to McManus, who made the announcement through his Twitter account on Wednesday night, writing “I'm happy to announce I have accepted the offensive coordinator position at New Mexico State!”
McManus worked closely under NMSU's previous offensive coordinator Doug Martin. The two worked together when Martin ran East Carolina's offense from 1996-2004, and then at Kent State when Martin was head coach of the Golden Flashes from 2005-10.
Martin was the primary playcaller at both stops as McManus was an associate head coach with the Golden Flashes. Martin, who ran a successful offense last year with the Aggies, was hired by Boston College last month. McManus' addition would mean the Aggies would have a similar system, philosophy and terminology in place from a season ago.
