Bob Davie has been hired as the next coach at New Mexico, ESPN's Joe Schad is reporting.
Davie, who coached at Notre Dame from 1997-2001, is set to replace Mike Locksley. The Lobos are in need of a major rebuilding project. Locksley won just two games in his two-plus seasons at New Mexico. He was fired in September, and New Mexico just won its first game of the season last week.
The Lobos have not had a winning season since 2007. Davie, who works as an analyst for ESPN, last served as a head coach with the Irish 10 years ago. He was 35-25 as head coach at Notre Dame, where he had the tough task of succeeding Lou Holtz.
