New Mexico HC Bob Davie will return for the 2019 season.
Davie and the Lobos went through a tumultuous offseason which included multiple investigations and a 30-day spring suspension of the coach due to culture concerns. The season itself was a poor one, with New Mexico posting a second straight year with a 3-9 record. Davie holds a 33-54 record since taking over as head coach prior to the start of the 2013 season. You would assume that he won't have much of a leash next year. Dec 1 - 1:04 PM

New Mexico AD Eddie Nunez said that the athletic department is "talking about football internally" in terms of potential budget cuts.

The Lobos just cut a quartet of sports -- beach volleyball, men's and women's skiing and men's soccer -- in an effort to save money. Football is not on the chopping block, but it's feeling the budgetary heat regardless, with amenities such as hotels before home games and perhaps some student meals set to potentially be scaled back or vaporized altogether. The athletic department could also potentially reign in funds allotted for recruiting trips.

New Mexico HC Bob Davie will begin his 30-day suspension on Saturday.

Davie has been suspended for 30 days without pay following an investigation into possible interference in several investigations into possible sexual assaults by New Mexico football players. A report from an outside firm did not ultimately find wrongdoing on Davie's end, but the university is using this as an opportunity to send a message in terms of their culture. With the head coach sidelined for the next month, DC Kevin Cosgrove will assume acting duties. Davie's suspension will end on March 18.

The Albuquerque News' Jessica Dyer passes along that New Mexico regents will not hear HC Bob Davie's appeal of his 30-day suspension.

Davie was appealing the university's decision to suspend him for a month (sans pay) as a result of an outside law firm's investigation into allegations of physical abuse to players in the program and possible tampering/obstruction in several cases of sexual assault alleged against football players. While this investigation by Chicago firm Hogan Marren Babbo & Rose did not ultimately find conclusive evidence of wrongdoing, they recommended that "strong action" be taken in order to prevent a rotten culture from taking hold.

New Mexico HC Bob Davie has appealed his 30-day suspension.

Davie was suspended without pay for one month following an investigation by a Chicago law firm into possible physical abuse of players and possible interference in cases of alleged sexual assault by New Mexico players. Three specific cases on the latter front were looked into. The law firm hired to run this investigation in November did not ultimately find any conclusive wrongdoing, here, but recommended to the university that "strong action" be taken in an effort to prevent a rotten culture from blossoming. Davie is appealing his suspension based on the fact that, as previously mentioned, no obstruction or malfeasance was determined conclusively to have taken place. He also cited the fact that he was never interviewed in the outside firm's investigation. The firm's report actually went so far as to say that they did not see a need to interview Davie given their overall conclusions.

New Mexico suspended HC Bob Davie for 30 days without pay following an investigation from an outside firm into the athletic department.

New Mexico hired a Chicago law firm -- Hogan Marren Babbo & Rose -- in November to follow up on a previous investigation by retired federal judge Bruce Black. Specifically, the investigating firm was looking into allegations of physical abuse of players, as well as alleged interference from the football program in regards to cases of possible sexual and physical violence by players. While they did not ultimately conclude that Davie -- whose name appears multiple times in the report, but was not interviewed for the investigation -- and the football program obstructed any criminal investigations, the firm recommended "strong action" to prevent a toxic culture from forming.
Feb 8 - 5:20 PM

New Mexico commissioned an outside investigation into allegations of player mistreatment by HC Bob Davie and questions about the integrity of the team’s drug-testing program.

"I can confirm there is an investigation underway in Athletics," said UNM spokesperson Cinnamon Blair, who declined to comment further. UNM Fishbowl previously reported that Davie wasn't liked by players and was described in exit interviews as aloof and having "no personal relationship with players." We'll have more on this story as it develops.

New Mexico AD Paul Krebs will retire on June 30.

Krebs has been under heavy fire for spending public money on a golf trip with private donors and athletic department officials in 2015. The university is currently under special audit as the state attempts to unravel how money is being spent in the athletic department. In a statement, acting school president Chaouki Abdallah said, "His tenure will go down as the most productive and successful in school history. Paul has tried to retire several times over the last year, and now I finally have reluctantly agreed to accept his retirement."

New Mexico will play UTSA in the New Mexico Bowl at University Stadium in Albuquerque, N.M.

For the second straight year, the Lobos (8-4, 6-2 Mountain West) will try to defend their homefield in the New Mexico Bowl. Last time around, they were respectable in a loss to Arizona. This time, they come in on a heater, having won six of seven. The triple-option running Lobos boast a pair of 1,000-yard rushers in Teriyon Gipson and Tyrone Owens (19 combined touchdowns). S&P+ ranks the offense No. 28, while New Mexico checks in at No. 22 in the FBS with 37.8 points per game. The other side of the ball has been a year-long struggle; S&P+ pegs the lousy defense No. 120. The Roadrunners (6-6, 5-3 Conference USA), meanwhile, are bowl eligible for the first time in the program’s six-year history. S&P+ pans both the offense (No. 98) and defense (No. 89). This team does one thing well, and that strength will give UTSA at least a shot here: S&P+ lists the run defense No. 49.

New Mexico signed HC Bob Davie to a two-year extension.

Davie was already under contract through the 2019 season prior to the extension. Make that 2021, now. He'll also receive a $50,000 bump in annual salary starting July 1. That'll bring his annual number to $422,690. This past season, the Lobos finished 7-6. This might seem relatively unspectacular, but it's their first winning season since 2007. In a statement, Vice President for Athletics Paul Krebs said, "Under the leadership of Coach Davie, our football program has transformed both on and off the field. We have a healthy future for our program, and I’m excited to have Coach Davie lead us."
