LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) - New Mexico State football coach DeWayne Walker has stepped down after four losing seasons to take a job as an assistant with the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Athletics director McKinley Boston announced Thursday that Walker is leaving to become defensive backs coach for the NFL team.

Walker went 10-40 with the Aggies.

In a statement, Walker thanked Boston for the opportunity to allow him to coach the Aggies. ``Unfortunately, I did not get the program as far as I would have liked from a wins and losses standpoint,'' Walker said. ``But, we do have a better locker room, better kids and a better foundation for the program moving forward.''

He was hired in December 2008 to replace Hal Mumme, after serving as defensive coordinator at UCLA for three years. Walker has NFL jobs on his resume. Before his time at UCLA, he was an assistant with the Washington Redskins and New York Giants from 2002-05.

Walker never won more than four games in a season with New Mexico State.

In 2009, Walker was arrested for suspected drunken driving but the charge was dismissed after authorities said his breath-alcohol level was well below the state's legal limit for presumed intoxication.

New Mexico State has not announced plans on its search for a new coach.
