NMSU offensive line coach resigns, cited for huffing

LAS CRUCES, N.M. (KRQE) – New Mexico State University’s offensive line coach has resigned, unable to shake a huffing addiction.

Chris Symington was cited by police twice in a four-day span for huffing compressed air. The plan is now for him to go to rehab in Colorado according to he and his wife.

The Las Cruces Sun-News reports Aggies football head coach Doug Martin says the staff will reach out to help Symington in any way they can.

According to state statute, the huffing citations are misdemeanors.

Symington was just hired to the program May 9. He came from CSU Pueblo and was the third offensive line coach for the Aggies in one year.
