Last week, we talked about the NCAA losing 3 of its 6 African-American Head Coaches at the Division 1 Bowl level (119 total head coaching positions). That # now stands at 4 after the University of New Mexico hired new Head Coach Mike Locksley.

Locksley will celebrate his 39th birthday on Christmas and I bet this will be the one he remembers the most.  He has paid his dues and built an impressive 17-year coaching resume. Most recently, he served as the Offensive Coordinator for the University of Illinois. During his tenure, Locksley led them to impressive offensive statistics of over 5,000 total yards in ’07, ’08.

Good luck Coach Locksley… we’ll be rooting for you and watching you do your thing in Lobo Country. Click Here to read the University of New Mexico’s official press release.
