New Mexico Lobos head coach Bob Davie would like to return to the team for his eighth season in 2019. He believes he’ll be back.

“Absolutely I plan on being back here next year,” Davie said. “And, absolutely I think I am the best guy for the job.”

The team is 3-8 this season, including a six-game losing streak. They are also 1-6 within the Mountain West Conference.

The six-game losing streak includes losses to the Colorado State Rams, the Fresno State Bulldogs, the Utah State Aggies, San Diego State Aztecs, the Air Force Falcons, and the Boise State Broncos. In these games, they have been outscored 237-105.

New Mexico has not won a game since October 6th. They defeated the UNLV Rebels, 50-14, at Sam Boyd Stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada.

“I do think that expectations are directly proportional to the commitment and the support of the program,” Davie said during a 20-minute press conference. “At some point someone has to decide: Have I done more with less? Or, have we done less with more?”

The 64-year-old has three-years remaining on his contract once this season ends. The season will conclude on Saturday against the Wyoming Cowboys at Dreamstyle Stadium in Alburqueque, New Mexico. 

“I do think that expectations are directly proportional to the commitment and the support of the program,” Davie said. “At some point, someone has to decide: Have I done more with less? Or, have we done less with more?”

Davie is 6-17 in the past two seasons at the school. The school has not had a winning season since 2016 when they went 9-4.

“There are a lot of issues that need to be discussed,” Davie said. “This isn’t the time. This isn’t the place. I’ve never been one to do that. And, I’ll never be one to do it. It’s a complex, not ‘one press conference’ meeting. This is a ’roundtable with a lot of key-people-involved’ discussion.”
