Aggies likely to announce Doug Martin as permanent football head coach today

The New Mexico State Aggies will likely announce later today that Doug Martin will be the school's permanent head football coach.

NMSU Athletics Director McKinley Boston wouldn't confirm Martin would be officially named, but did say a press release will be sent today regarding Aggie football.

Martin is the former head coach at Kent State University from 2004-10 and served as Aggie offensive coordinator in 2011.

Last night, multiple NMSU officials indicated an announcement wouldn't come until early next week, although things shifted Friday morning.

This is a great decision! It will take a few years to keep this program moving foward. I hope Nmsu would of had an easier schedule for the 2013 season but this is a guy who will work with what he's has.

Why is Martin such a great hire? He failed at Kent St. Check his record. He will employ the same staff that only won one game last year and it was against an fcs (we know coordinators and position coaches are more crucial to how the team plays). Plus he will run the same dinosaur schemes, and run the same dinosaur program that cannot suceed at state. We need someone young and innovative who thinks outside the box. Its our only shot. We are not Alabama and will never have their players. Traditional football will lose at state
