New Mexico hires Reaves as QB coach

David Reaves has been named the quarterbacks coach and passing game coordinator at New Mexico.

Reaves, who is USC coach Lane Kiffin's brother-in-law, replaces Tee Martin, who left the program in February to coach wide receivers at Kentucky.

Reaves spent the 2009 season coordinating the passing game at Tennessee. The Vols passed for 2,942 yards and 28 touchdowns under Reaves. Prior to that, Reaves spent seven seasons at South Carolina.

"David Reaves is a great addition to our staff and has some of the top pedigree in college football," New Mexico coach Mike Locksley said in a statement. "He brings a wealth of knowledge to our program and has been worked for two outstanding coaches in Lou Holz and Steve Spurrier. David has a national reputation as a top recruiter and can develop quarterbacks."
