Report: New Mexico State's Walker goes pro

To no one’s surprise, New Mexico State head coach DeWayne Walker is leaving the WAC to join old buddy Pete Carroll in Seattle, 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.

    What you mean too many college coaches. Every coach he has hired has NFL experience. Walker, Bates, Gibbs. Please tell me what you mean. I love that no one is giving Carroll a chance. This man is driven and will show you all. Seahawks in the playoffs in two years.
