To no one’s surprise, New Mexico State head coach DeWayne Walker is leaving the WAC to join old buddy Pete Carroll in Seattle, Profootballtalk.com has learned.
Walker lasted just one season at NMSU, leading the Aggies to a 3-10 record. He was Carroll’s first hire at Southern Cal in 2001, coaching the Trojans’ secondary. Walker also has experience as a defensive backs coach in the pros, having served in the position with the Redskins and Giants.
Walker was the UCLA Bruins’ defensive coordinator before taking the New Mexico State head job. While Jeremy Bates runs Carroll’s offense, Mike Florio says Walker will coordinate the Seahawks’ defense.
