 LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) -UCLA defensive coordinator DeWayne Walker has been hired as New Mexico State's new head coach.
NMSU athletic director McKinley Boston announced the hiring Tuesday. The university scheduled a news conference Wednesday morning to formally introduce Walker.
Walker, in his third season with UCLA, visited NMSU on Monday and met with administrators and toured the athletic facilities.
He will replace Hal Mumme, who was fired in early December after the Aggies went 3-9 last fall, including a 1-7 mark in the Western Athletic Conference.

In 2007, UCLA was ranked 14th in rushing defense with 109.2 yards per game, 29th in total defense with 343.23 yards and 29th in scoring defense with 22.3 points.
