Since becoming Head Coach of the Lobos the team is 2-26.
Now, it seems only the die-hard fans are coming out to the games.
"Lobo Nation has to come together and either figure out what to do with this head coach... we just got beat on both sides of the ball... they scheduled this team purposely for homecoming and obviously we couldn't pull off a win," says a disgruntled fan.
