New Mexico State officials hope to keep their men's basketball coach in Las Cruces and will meet with him Monday to make their pitch. That is according to a report by the Albuquerque Journal who sources told that NMSU Athletic Director Dr. McKinley Boston plans to meet with Marvin Menzies with an offer in hand to extend the contract of the coach.
This comes after Menzies interviewed for five hours on Friday with officials from Colorado State in reguards to the vacant head coaching position. Menzies named surfaced Wednesday as a candidate and Boston confirmed that he had granted permission to CSU to interview Menzies.
The meeting will aim to intice Menzies to withdraw his name from consideration for the job and keep him coaching the Aggies. NMSU has no comment.
