A couple of months after the spinning of the 2013-14 Coaching Carousel came to an unofficial end, New Mexico State has found itself forced back on the unpopular ride.
Following up on reports from earlier in the day, NMSU confirmed in a press release that Steve Marshall has decided to leave his post as offensive line coach to take a job with the Green Bay Packers. Specifically, Marshall will serve as the NFL club’s assistant line coach.
“Obviously we hate to lose coach Marshall to Green Bay but I understand what a great opportunity this is for him and his family,” Aggies head coach Doug Martin said in a statement. “We wish him the best of luck.”
Marshall tenure with the Aggies was a short one as he had just been added to Martin’s first NMSU coaching staff back in mid-January. This move marks a return to the NFL as Marshall had previously worked on staffs with the Houston Texans (2002-05) and Cleveland Browns (2007-08).
The other 30 years of his coaching career, however, were spent at the collegiate level, with stops including Cal, Colorado, Louisville, Tennessee, UCLA and Virginia Tech.
