New Mexico State coach Doug Martin receives a three-year contract extension through the 2020 season. Martin is 12-40 at the school but 2-2 this season. New Mexico State had never met NCAA APR standards before his arrival but posted a 972 multiyear rate in 2015-16. The Aggies beat UTEP and New Mexico in the same year for the first time since 2002.

HC Doug Martin on coaching Julian Edelman at Kent State: "His will to win was greater than his will to be liked. Was the alpha dog. Distinct. College kids don't understand that. They want to be liked, popular." He tells his team about Julian as an example. RB Larry Rose III has especially taken to that/asks about it. Plays with chip on his shoulder, and that's permeated to rest of the team.
