"I'm excited to join the athletic department staff," said Edwards. "I think it's a great opportunity and I look forward to putting out a great product for Eastern New Mexico. I want to thank the search committee and Dr. Waggoner for giving me this opportunity."

"We are happy to have Will join our Greyhound team and excited to get him on board," said Waggoner. "His skill set will enable us to address the ongoing needs and our most compelling new needs as we get ready to open the new Greyhound Stadium with the video board. Will comes to us with very solid experience, skills sets and recommendations."
