New Mexico football coach Bob Davie is currently being investigated following multiple allegations, according to a report from Daniel Libit of NMFishbowl.com.
The allegations against Davie include player mistreatment and the possibility of compromising the drug-testing process for players.
“I can confirm there is an investigation underway in Athletics,” New Mexico spokesperson Cinnamon Blair told the website in a statement. “We are not going to comment on the details or the individuals involved until the investigation is complete.”
From the report:
The Davie investigation was initiated in recent months, sources say, following the latest round of athlete exit interviews conducted over the spring.
NMFishbowl.com has not been told who the school has tasked with carrying out the investigation, or what precisely triggered it. However, sources say that the severity and volume of the allegations made by players were deemed to be of a serious enough nature as to warrant outside review.
Davie has been leading the Lobos since 2012, when he replaced Mike Locksley.
Under the direction of Davie, New Mexico has tallied an overall record of 28-37. Despite the record being below .500, the Lobos have finished the past two seasons with winning records and bowl appearances.
We will update the story with new information as it becomes available.
New Mexico, meanwhile, currently sitting at 1-1 on the season, will be looking to keep its focus on the field with a trip to Idaho to take on the Boise State Broncos set for Thursday night on ESPN.
