New Mexico State to keep football head coach Doug Martin
LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) — New Mexico State athletics director Mario Moccia says Aggies head coach Doug Martin will return for his eighth season.
Moccia told the Las Cruces Sun-News on Monday he believes Martin will get the Aggies back in a bowl game despite the team’s 2-10 record this season.
Moccia says Martin was the reason New Mexico State reached the Arizona Bowl in 2017 after nearly 60 years of not playing in the college postseason.
Martin has a 22-63 record as the Aggies head coach.
Moccia says a buyout of Martin's contract and the Aggies assistant coaching staff would be in the neighborhood of $1.3 million.
