Albuquerque Journal - - BUSINESS SERVICE DIRECTORY - JOUR­NAL STAFF AND WIRES

The Univer­sity of New Mex­ico men’s bas­ket­ball team on Wed­nes­day pro­moted Ralph Davis to as­sis­tant coach, fill­ing the void left from last month’s res­ig­na­tion of Bran­don Ma­son fol­low­ing an ar­rest on a drunken driv­ing al­le­ga­tion. Davis, the for­mer New Mex­ico Mil­i­tary In­sti­tute head coach, served as the Lo­bos’ di­rec­tor of op­er­a­tions last sea­son and video co­or­di­na­tor in the 2018-19 sea­son.

“Ralph has been pro­moted ev­ery year he’s been here and it’s a tes­ta­ment to his work ethic and loy­alty,” head coach Paul Weir said in a state­ment.

The Lo­bos also for­mally an­nounced the hire of Robert Ed­wards as video co­or­di­na­tor. He held the same po­si­tion last sea­son at Texas A&M Cor­pus Christi and was a grad­u­ate as­sis­tant at Ne­vada from 2017-2019.

“I have ad­mired Coach Weir and his pro­gram from afar for a long time and I am look­ing for­ward to the op­por­tu­nity to learn from him and other mem­bers of the staff,” Ed­wards said.
