NMSU drops interim tag for Martin

New Mexico State has dropped the interim tag for coach Doug Martin.

Athletic director McKinley Boston said Friday that Martin was selected after a committee interviewed four candidates. Boston said he got the job because he wanted to return to Las Cruces and had "overwhelming support."

Martin, who was offensive coordinator, was promoted to interim coach last week after DeWayne Walker stepped down to take a position with the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Martin takes over a struggling program that has not appeared in a bowl game since 1960.
