UNM to retain Bob Davie for the 2019 Season

University of New Mexico athletic director Eddie Nunez released a statement today that the school will retain head coach Bob Davie for the 2019 season amid speculation that the school would move on from Davie after another disappointing season.

The Lobos lost their final seven games of the season to finish with a 3-9 record for the second consecutive year.

Here is the full release from the school:

“After meeting with Coach Davie, both he and I are looking forward to the 2019 season.  Recruiting is already in full swing.  Since taking over in 2012, the team has set records in the classroom, won a division title and qualified for two bowl games.  Neither Coach Davie nor I were satisfied with the results of last season.  Coach Davie and his staff, as well as our department, are striving to make the 2019 season a success, and that process has already started.

Coach Davie wants to be at New Mexico and wants nothing more than a program that our University and our fans can be proud of.  He is committed to working tirelessly to return UNM to the level of success in 2015 and 2016.  We both are excited for the upcoming 2019 season.”
