Speculation on DeWayne Walker's future has him landing with Jacksonville Jaguars

Rampant speculation throughout the internet and on Twitterverse had head coach DeWayne Walker leaving New Mexico State for an assistant coaching position with the Jacksonville Jaguars of the NFL.

Click here for the Sun-News story that appeared in Tuesday's online edition and Wednesday's print product.

While people in and around the Aggie athletics program said nothing was a done deal, the general expectation is that Walker will in fact take the job.

If and when it happens, expect offensive coordinator Doug Martin to be named head coach in the interim, and to at least get the program through signing day. Depending on how things transpire, he could hold the head coaching title longer than that as well.

Best of luck to Walker with the Jags. I don't see this as a bad thing for NMSU. Walker had enough time to show he could get the program moving in the right direction...he was not able to to so. NMSU needs a coach with a different strategy. Maybe Martin is the guy?

he is gone just like i told all of you. With aggies going independent said cant win here. Boston will have to schedule prostitute games as jim hess use to call them only way to generate money. Thats why coach martin came back he knew he could become head coach. They need to get rid of Boston and menzie and clean up the athletic program.

Good for Coach Walker. He is a very nice man and a good coach. Unfortunately he landed in the best spot to kill a coaching career. Move on to better things and get the hell out of the coaching graveyard.

Will JAX be compensating NMSU for hiring a coach that was under contract for 5 more years? Was this part of DW's contract extension?
