LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) -New Mexico State fired football coach Hal Mumme on Tuesday, ending a four-year run in which the program often ended up in the news for the wrong reasons.
The Aggies lost seven straight games to end the season 3-9 and 1-7 in the Western Athletic Conference. They lost 49-0 at home to Boise State and ended the year last weekend with a 47-2 defeat at Utah State.
During Mumme's tenure, the university also paid $165,000 to settle a 2006 lawsuit brought by three former Muslim players who claimed they were dismissed from the team because of their religious beliefs.
Mumme had a 11-38 record as NMSU's head coach, but five of those victories were against teams from the Football Championship Subdivision.
