LAS CRUCES – The New Mexico State Athletics Department announced Thursday that DeWayne Walker has accepted the defensive backs coaching position with the Jacksonville Jaguars. Walker was the Aggies’ head coach from 2008-2012. 


“I really appreciate the opportunity that Dr. Boston and New Mexico State gave me to be a division I head football coach.  Unfortunately, I did not get the program as far as I would have liked from a wins and losses standpoint. But, we do have a better locker room, better kids and a better foundation for the program moving forward.  There are a lot of people that I want to thank for their support and will be reaching out to those individuals in the coming days. They have helped me in moving the program forward.  I am excited about starting a new chapter in my coaching career, as is my family. I wish New Mexico State great success in the future and wish everyone the best.  Go Aggies!”
