New Mexico hires NMSU's Paul Weir as new head coach

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) New Mexico looked to its own backyard for a new men's basketball coach by hiring New Mexico State head coach Paul Weir to lead the Lobos.

"There's going to be a lot of questions about me. I totally get it," Weir said at his introductory news conference Tuesday. "I was a one-year head coach. I'm coming from New Mexico State. I'm a little bit unknown and I'm well aware of what I'm stepping into."

What's he's stepping into is a New Mexico program that has lost four players with remaining eligibility who decided to transfer and a declining fan base. But Weir said he plans to re-energize the program through style of play.
