New Mexico hired Ray Birmingham to replace Rich Alday as its head coach. The Lobos didn’t have to look far to find Birmingham–he’s had the state’s best baseball program for years.
The 51-year-old, who graduated from high school in Hobbs, N.M., started the program at New Mexico Junior College in 1990, and after the team went just 22-30 in its first season, it has had winning records ever since. Since 2000, Birmingham’s clubs were an impressive 378-88-2 (.805 winning percentage), and his 2005 club won the NJCAA World Series championship. He also coached at NAIA College of the Southwest and at Las Cruces (N.M.) Mayfield High in the early 1980s. His big league alumni have included Brendan Donnelly and Armando Almanza.
