Long also made sure to point out he doesn't work much with the offensive side of the ball, and gave some tips for what a good head coach does for his coordinators.
"I have nothing to do with that side of the ball, by the way," Long said. That's (offensive coordinator) Andy Ludwig, him and the offensive coaches are the ones that develop the offensive game plan and they are pretty inventive. A head coach, if you have a really good coordinator and good coaches, you know what a head coach does? Stay out of their damn way.
“I’m uncomfortable with the award because it has nothing to do with me,” Long said at his Tuesday press conference. “It has to do with players playing well and winning games. You only win those kinds of awards if the players win games.
“It’s more a statement of the program than of the individual. I think it’s more of a statement of how far the players have come.”---------------------------------Congratulations Coach Long... You deserve it!

What Davie did this year IMO is way above anything RL accomplished here, and i know Rocky did some really good things-but was still a sub .500 football coach. Problem is and no fault of his own, Long was only good relative to the crappy history of UNM football. I enjoyed his time here but he peaked and it got stale with the OC flavor of the month issue. He left calling out the 'damn fans' which i thought was in poor taste right or wrong.I think UNM can do better and should ascribe to do better and not make legends of below .500 coaches. He never won a MWC title here, and he gravy trained his title at SDSU in down MWC year no less. Hell we almost beat Boise st...not exactly a powerhouse like they've been.
