New Mexico has hired former Notre Dame coach Bob Davie to head up its troubled football program.

Vice President of Athletics Paul Krebs announced the appointment Wednesday. UNM has scheduled a press conference Thursday afternoon to introduce Davie, who will become the university's 31st head
coach.

Davie compiled a 35-25 record at Notre Dame and led the Irish to three bowl games, including the 2001 Fiesta Bowl. Davie also spent 20 years as an assistant, including three years as Notre Dame's defensive coordinator and nine at Texas A&M.

Davie is currently the lead college football analyst for ESPN's prime-time Saturday night game.
