Paul Weir will be out as New Mexico's head men's basketball coach at the end of the season, the school announced Friday night.

Weir is expected to coach in the regular-season finale against Colorado State on Wednesday and in the Mountain West Conference tournament.

"Paul and I agree that a change of leadership in our men's basketball program is in our best interest at this time," athletic director Eddie Nunez said. "While this year has certainly been challenging for Coach Weir, his staff, and our student-athletes, after evaluating the overall program, it is the appropriate time for a new beginning.
