Sources: NMSU to hire Atkinson as new women's basketball coach


Sources tell KFOX14 Brooke Atkinson is the new head coach of the NMSU women's basketball team.

Atkinson has been an assistant coach at Colorado State University for the past three years. The Rams reached the postseason in each of those 3 years.

Before CSU, Atkinson was an assistant coach at New Mexico State from 2003-2010 and helped the Aggies land in 3 WAC Championship games.

NMSU has yet to confirm our report.

The Aggies have been without a women's basketball coach since Mark Trakh resigned to take the head job at Southern Cal a few weeks ago.
