Locksley gone…What’s next?September 26th, 2011 at 2:02 pm by vantate under Latest Posts, Sports
Speculation has already started on who will be the next football coach at the University of New Mexico. Mike Locksley hadn’t been fired a full 24 hours before the name Mike Leach surfaced. The former Texas Tech coach has been on the wish list of Lobo fans since last season. When talking about what kind of coach he wanted, UNM Vice President of Athletics Paul Krebs said someone who could recruit Texas and knows something about Albuquerque. That sounds a lot like Mike Leach. The new coach might have to do some re-recruiting to keep some of the current players on the team. While he didn’t have much success winning football games, Mike Locksley could recruit. Some of the highly touted players he brought in might sour on the fact the he is no longer coaching at New Mexico.
