Borges said to be Aztecs' new offensive coordinator


10:08 a.m. December 24, 2008

A source close to San Diego State's football program said Wednesday that Al Borges has been hired by new coach Brady Hoke as the team's offensive coordinator.

Borges, 53, most recently served as the offensive coordinator at Auburn, where he resigned following the regular season last year. Borges, a native of Salinas, is currently living in Alabama where his wife, Nikki, serves as associate athletic director for marketing and communications at Auburn.

Borges, once described by former Auburn head coach Pat Dye as “one of the best offensive coordinators I've ever seen,” has been an offensive coordinator at seven different schools, including Oregon, UCLA and Cal. During his time at UCLA (1996-2000), the Bruins averaged 31.9 points per game. UCLA averaged 40.7 points in 1997 and 40.5 in 1998.

The source also indicated that Hoke's hiring of former New Mexico head coach Rocky Long as defensive coordinator could be imminent. Long, 58, coached the Lobos for 11 seasons. He resigned last month after New Mexico finished 4-8 following an injury-plagued season.

From 2001-07, New Mexico was the only team in the Mountain West Conference not to have a losing record in league play.
