Former Notre Dame Head Coach Finally Gets Another Coaching Job
For the first time in more than 10 years, Bob Davie will have a job other than being a college football analysis and color commentator for ESPN. Davie, the former head football coach at Notre Dame from 1997-2001, was announced as the head football coach at New Mexico on Wednesday.
Before he became the Irish head coach, Davie was the team’s defensive coordinator under Lou Holtz from 1994-1996. Davie also had stops at Pittsburgh, Arizona, Tulane and Texas A&M before he came to Notre Dame.
While Davie had some talented teams, none of them ever lived up to expectations. In five years in South Bend, Davie complied a 35-25 record. His best seasons came in 1998 and 2000, where the Irish went 9-3, but lost in both bowl games.
Even though he didn’t get the job done while in South Bend, I have always personally liked Davie. His teams always played hard and he graduated his kids and he has done a great job announcing games on ESPN. I am a bit surprise that it took 10 years to finally get another head coaching job at a school. His resume at ND shouldn’t discredit him from getting a job elsewhere.
Davie will have his work cut out for him at New Mexico though. A basketball first school, the Lobos have a all-time losing record and they have only won three bowl games in their history. They currently stand at 1-9 with their lone win coming this past weekend against UNLV.
Here is to the former Notre Dame head coach having tons of success at New Mexico.
