New Mexico signs Davie to 2-year extension
The University of New Mexico and head football coach Bob Davie have agreed on a two-year contract extension.ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- The University of New Mexico and head football coach Bob Davie have agreed on a two-year contract extension.
The school announced Tuesday that the new seven-year agreement will run through the 2019 season.
New Mexico says the financial terms from Davie's original contract remain unchanged.
Vice president for athletics Paul Krebs says school officials are excited about the direction of the Lobos football program on and off the field under Davie.
Davie, a former head coach at Notre Dame, signed a six-year, $4.5 million contract in late 2011 to become the Lobos' head coach.
Davie led the Lobos to a 4-9 record during his first season in 2012, producing more victories than the 2009 to 2011 seasons combined.
