ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Offense was the major concern for Bob Davie, as he held his first press conference of the year, prior to the 2016 season.

They struggled with injuries on the offensive line last season, and were unable to get a lot of work out of key players in the spring workouts, like Garret Adcock, who had responsibilities with Law School.

The Lobos also bring in a new Offensive Coordinator into the mix, Saga Tuitele, but they also lose star running back Jhurell Pressley.

“But we have got one month from tomorrow to get it caught up, but it is a full on maniacal approach. I mean we know where we are on offense and we know what we need to do over these next 4 weeks,” said University of New Mexico Head Football Coach Bob Davie.

They are also down Wide Receiver Delane Hart-Johnson, who was involved in a serious car accident in May. He is doing fine now, but will redshirt the 2016 season.

“You know he had fractured a vertebra in his neck which will completely heal, in fact its healed now so he has been cleared to do some things but just with the trauma he took we all think it’s just best to give him a year,” said UNM Coach Bob Davie.

The Lobos will hold their first practice of the year on Thursday at 2:15 p.m.
