Aggie athletics confirms DeWayne Walker's departure
His departure was confirmed by NMSU athletics on Thursday morning.
"He is going to resign and accept a position in Jacksonville," NMSU Athletics Director McKinley Boston said. "It's official."
Walker returns to the NFL as an assistant with the Jaguars, where he'll coach defensive backs.
His four-year tenure at NMSU resulted in a 10-40 overall record, although Walker still had four years remaining on his contract at the school.
Doug Martin will likely be named an interim coach of the program, although NMSU could still hold a national coaching search to find a full-time replacement for Walker.
