ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.- The UNM football team announced nine coaching hires on Friday:

Derek Warehime, Offensive Coordinator
Saga Tuitele, Offense
Jason Lenzmeier, Offense
Jordan Somerville, Offense
Troy Reffett, Safeties
David Howes, Linebackers
Brandon Blackmon, Cornerbacks
Jamie Christian, Special Teams
James Carson, Head Athletic Performance


First-year head coach Danny Gonzales still has two spots to fill.

"I'm really excited for our staff," said Gonzales.  "I really like the mix that we have, with several young up-and-coming coaches, and several experienced coaches who understand the systems that we want to run.  This is a staff that understands not just Lobo Football and The University of New Mexico, but what it takes to win in Albuquerque and what it UNM means to our state."
