The New Mexico Lobos have announced that head coach Bob Davie will return for the 2019 season. The 2019 season will be his eighth at the school.

“After meeting with Coach Davie, both he and I are looking forward to the 2019 season,” New Mexico AD Eddie Nunez said in a statement. “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 are both excited for the upcoming 2019 season.”
