Davie remembers time fondly as an Aggie assistant

BRYAN, Texas (KBTX) -- Bob Davie has done a lot of things in his football coaching career. Probably most notable becoming the head football coach at Notre Dame.

What got him on Lou Holtz's staff in South Bend as the Irish's defensive coordinator was the job he did at Texas A&M as the Aggies' D.C. from 1989 to 1993 under R.C. Slocum.

When Holtz retired, Davie was promoted to head coach of the Irish.

He got out of coaching in 2001 and dabbled in television as an analyst only to return to the sidelines at New Mexico in 2012.

Davie returns to College Station on Saturday and will be a big underdog against the Aggies, but there will be some comfort in being back at Kyle Field where he enjoyed a lot of success as an A&M assistant.

"We lost three games in Kyle Field in 9 years. My last four years, '90, '91, '92, '93 our last four years we didn't lose a game at Kyle Field in four years. So it's a very tough place to win," commented Davie.

The Aggies will put their 28 game non-conference home winning streak on the line against Davie and the Lobos of New Mexico Saturday at 6 p.m. on ESPNU.
