I'm not incredibly familiar with University of New Mexico football or what the fans want, but all I know is the Lobos need to bring someone in to breath life back into the program. Leaving the Albuquerque-metro area Saturday after Hobbs' game against Cleveland the night before, you couldn't even tell there was a home game, nevertheless the homecoming game.
One hire can make a difference, and it doesn't have to be a big name. I know this first hand as my alma mater Oregon brought on Chip Kelly from New Hampshire (yes, New Hampshire) in 2007 as the offensive coordinator then hired him as head coach in 2009. The Ducks haven't looked back with a Rose Bowl and national championship appearance in Kelly's first two years at the helm.
The Lobos don't have to make a splash hire with a well-known name.
UNM - who is playing in a conference that could be a BCS automatic qualifier shortly - needs to make the right hire.
