PORTALES, N.M. (AP) - Eastern New Mexico has promoted its offensive coordinator to be its next head football coach.

Athletic Director Greg Waggoner told KENW-FM on Thursday (https://goo.gl/gqSDtL) the school has signed a one-year contract with Kelley Lee.

President Steven Gamble told the station Lee will earn a $94,000 for one year.

Lee replaces Josh Lynn who was hired this week as the new head football coach at Nebraska-Kearney.

Eastern New Mexico had four straight winning seasons under Lynn. This past season the Greyhounds were 7-5 and led the Lone Star Conference in total offense.

Waggoner didn’t say if the football coaching staff was returning under Lee.

Lee joined the Eastern New Mexico coaching staff in 2012. He also served at the offensive coordinator/assistant head coach at Midland College in 2008.
