University of New Mexico acting head coach Saga Tuitele said his new role amid preparation for the Lobos’ game at No. 7 Notre Dame on Saturday has been “a seamless transition.”
Tuitele on Sunday met with the media for the first time since being named acting head coach on Thursday, when head coach Bob Davie announced he would not be making the trip to South Bend, Indiana because of his doctors’ advice after a health scare he experienced on Aug. 31.
Tuitele said Davie continues to be involved. Davie, who coached at Notre Dame for eight years as the head coach and defensive coordinator, has encouraged Tuitele to have fun with this week.
