New Mexico has taken notice of Bob Davie’s winning football season and bowl appearance, the first since 2007, and has locked up the head coach through 2021.
Vice President for Athletics Paul Krebs announced on Monday morning that Davie signed a two-year extension with UNM, the second extension during his tenure as a Lobo. The first extension came for Davie in April 2013, after his first year leading the helm when the head coach produced a 4-9 record.
UNM’s four wins in 2012 tied the amount of victories the three years prior to Davie’s arrival. The Lobos were 4-32 from 2009-11.
“Under the leadership of Coach Davie, our football program has transformed both on and off the field,” Krebs said in a release. “We have a healthy future for our program, and I’m excited to have Coach Davie lead us.”
Although not beginning until July 1, Davie’s base pay will increase by $50,000. Davie’s contract has an annual base salary of $372,690 and according to the Albuquerque Journal, he has promotion and media agreements under his contract which are worth another $300,000.
