Durham resigns at NMSU, accepts job in Alaska

LAS CRUCES — New Mexico State University men’s basketball assistant coach Mick Durham has resigned from his position with the Aggies to return to the head coaching ranks at Alaska Fairbanks.
Durham spent the last three seasons on the Aggie sidelines helping NMSU to a WAC Tournament Championships and NCAA Tournament appearance in 2009-10.
“I’m extremely happy for Mick and his family that this opportunity came his way,” Aggie head coach Marvin Menzies said. “I think it bodes well for our program to be able to have guys advance their careers.”
In his tenure at NMSU, Durham helped the Aggies to a 55-44 overall record and 29-19 record in the WAC. In 2010-11, the squad set a school record with a 12-game WAC home win streak that dated back to the 2009-10 season.
The Aggies won their second WAC Tournament Championship in 2009-10 and made their 18th appearance in the NCAA Tournament with a near upset of No. 12 Michigan State in the first round.
Durham joined the Aggies in 2008 after 16 years as the head coach at Montana State. He retired in 2006 with the second-most victories and second-longest coaching tenure in Golden Bobcats’ school history.
