Weir the choice at New Mexico

The search for the next University of New Mexico men’s basketball coach went from weird to Weir.

After a chaotic 11-day national search started with an 11th-hour firing followed by trips around the country with several UNM officials taking part in a crowded interview process of a handful of candidates often left unsure who was calling the shots, the Lobos eventually found their man right down the road in Las Cruces.

Paul Weir, the 37-year-old Toronto native and first year head coach of the New Mexico State Aggies who set a program record with 28 wins and an NCAA Tournament appearance, has agreed to become the 21st head coach of the UNM Lobos men’s basketball team.
