New Mexico State University has officially posted the job listing for the school's head football coach on its website.

The job's official post date was Saturday, Jan. 26, 2013. According to the job description, the position is open two days — Sunday through Tuesday. The anticipated start date for the job is listed as Feb. 1, 2013.
What does this indicate? First, it's believed Aggies are required to open the job. Secondly, with it open for two days, perhaps they have a short list in hand, and already a candidate in mind.
It also indicates the school is moving fast, something that hasn't always been the case in similar instances (just think back to recent football assistant-coaching departures in December, when university officials couldn't comment on such moves until mid-January).
NMSU Athletics Director McKinley Boston said last week during a press conference introducing interim coach Doug Martin, that he was unsure of a timeframe for making a full-time hire, or if a national search would be put in place.
On the surface, Martin is a good fit for the job — a coach who has experience at NMSU as offensive coordinator in 2011 and was the head coach at Kent State for seven years.
