The University of New Mexico introduced Bob Davie as its next head football coach in a Thursday press conference at University Stadium in Albuquerque.
UNM and Davie agreed to a six-year, $4.5 million contract.
In 1996, Davie took over the head coaching position at Norte Dame after Lou Holtz retired. As head coach Davie led the Irish to a 35-25 overall record.
He has spent 20 out of his 31 years of college coaching experience as an assistant at Pittsburgh, Arizona, Tulane, Texas A&M and Norte Dame.
Davie was a college football analyst for ESPN and ABC prior to joining the UNM football team.
The Lobos have three wins in the three seasons. UNM (1-9, 1-4) has two games left in its 2011 season, on the road, at Wyoming and Boise State.
Davie will only watch the games, analyze what he can use from a program that needs a everything fixed and scout for 2012.
