New Mexico coach Bob Davie will not return as the Lobos' football coach in 2020, the school announced Monday.

Davie, who is 35-63 since taking over in November 2011, will coach the Lobos (2-9, 0-7 Mountain West) in the regular-season finale against Utah State on Saturday

"In stepping aside, I'm proud of what we accomplished at UNM, but we are all disappointed that we have not been able to sustain the success that we achieved and all desire," Davie said in a statement. "My family and I will be forever grateful to UNM for giving me the opportunity to coach again."

His eight-season tenure is tied for the second-longest in program history. Davie was hired at New Mexico after spending 10 years at ESPN, which followed a five-year run as the head coach at Notre Dame (1997-2001), where he went 35-25.

Probably should have never left Boise. He had some moments in Seattle, but he never looked comfortable.

On the bright[??] side, Purdue probably won't have to worry about teams making a run at Jeff Brohm this offseason...

If they do anyway, I'm thinking Kevin Sumlin might come on the market. Heh.

He is a Purdue legacy. Played LB for the Boilers in the 80s.

There are worse candidates. He'd probably come cheaper than Brohm at least.

The perfect linearity behind Kevin Sumlin’s midlife crisis:

2011 (at Houston): 12-1
2012 (at Texas A&M): 11-2
2013: 9-4
2014: 8-5
2015: 8-5
2016: 8-5
2017: 7-5
2018 (at Arizona): 5-7
2019: 4-8

Sometimes people make decisions to leave a place for all the right reasons.  I don't draw any conclusions for why CP is stepping down.   People have all kinds of different ambitions,  desires,  quality of life, plans and so forth.   He's brought that place back to a pretty high level if you really look back at the lows they hit. 

This season was a bit disappointing no doubt.

Possibly.  Well, my boss isn't that, or other curse words, but we (finally) announced our company's sale last week.  A bit of a win-win spin off.    These changes introduce all kinds of dynamics which will no doubt impact why 'A'  or 'B' decide to hang around,  maybe certain people find a groove and develop beyond their capabilities than they were ever able to under the 'Old Co', etc.    The environment you're in is too often neglected by observers of a particular industry in the comings and goings of senior leadership.  Of course in other circumstances, it's just business/money.

I endured two good bosses out of about 20, and 3 remarkably bad/crazy/insane bosses.  Most were just there, largely worthless and pointless and apathetic.

I had one lady boss from Italy who was seriously crazy, she's walk down the hall muttering to herself, showed up to work around 10 AM and left around 3, unless there was snow in the forecast where she'd leave at 11 AM.  She also tried to get me demoted when HER boss was having me promoted, same time period.  I "survived" by largely ignoring her (except the time she came into my office and sat down and put her hand on my knee, she was not attractive at all).

I have a ton of stupid boss stories, but she took the cake.  The bad one was a boss two levels above me who almost ruined my career.  I just had to wait him out.
