The news that defensive coordinator Willie Mack Garza interviewed at the University of New Mexico is not surprising — it was a matter of time before an FBS school came knocking. Spoke with Willie Mack today and he said there is interest on both ends but nothing has been finalized. My sense is the job is his.
It makes sense for the Lobos. Willie Mack is a legend in the state of Texas having been inducted into the Texas High School Hall of Fame a few years ago. New Mexico needs every recruiting pipeline one state to the east that it can get.
This is Craig Bohl’s sixth year at NDSU. Every year, he’s had an assistant leave for another program and this time, it looks like Willie Mack is the guy.
