New Mexico: Racial complaint ‘untrue’

The University of New Mexico says anonymous allegations that

football coach Bob Davie discriminates against players based on

their race are ”unfounded and untrue.”

Lobos athletic director Paul Krebs said Wednesday that

university officials concluded that the allegations cited in an

anonymous letter were false after reviewing the letter and speaking

with Davie.

The letter sent to various media outlets alleges that Davie

tolerates white players smoking marijuana but not black players.

The letter, which was signed ”Sincerely, UNM Senior Football

Players,” also claims that Davie hands out harsher penalties

against black players than he does against white players.

Davie dismissed the letter at a news conference discussing new

recruits.
