 Las  Cruces, NM  (Sports Network) - Doug Martin has accepted, in principle, an
 offer to become New Mexico State's new head football coach, athletics director
 Dr. McKinley Boston announced Friday.
 The  official announcement  will be made at a press conference on Monday, Feb.
 Martin  was  named interim head  coach last week  after DeWayne Walker left to
 take  a  position with the  Jacksonville Jaguars.  Walker was the Aggies' head
 coach  from 2008-12. He was 1-11 this past season, and 10-40 during his tenure
 at New Mexico State.
 "I  am thrilled  for the opportunity and very appreciative that Dr. Boston and
 the  administration  have the confidence in  me to move this program forward,"
 Martin said. "I think there is unlimited potential in this program and in this
 city  and I  look forward to building  this football program to be part of the
 City of Las Cruces."
 Martin  was New Mexico State's offensive coordinator in 2011 before taking the
 same  position at  Boston College in 2012.  He was also the head coach at Kent
 State from 2004-2010.
