In December 2005, San Diego State (http://topics.signonsandiego.com/topics/San_Diego_State_University) arranged to fly Rocky Long (http://topics.signonsandiego.com/topics/Rocky_Long) from New Mexico (http://topics.signonsandiego.com/topics/New_Mexico) to Orange County for a job interview.

It was all very secretive. At the time, Long was the head football coach at the University of New Mexico. SDSU wanted to talk to him about becoming the Aztecs (http://topics.signonsandiego.com/topics/Aztec)’ next head football coach — a position that intrigued him enough to consider leaving his alma mater in Albuquerque.
