New Mexico football news: Bob Davie being investigated for mistreatment
Really iffy news coming out of the New Mexico football program, as head coach Bob Davie is under investigation for player mistreatment.
NMfishbowl.com, citing multiple sources, is reporting that New Mexico head coach Bob Davie is currently under investigation for the alleged mistreatment of players. The website wrote that “[t]he Davie investigation was initiated in recent months… following the latest round of athlete exit interviews conducted over the spring.”
Apparently, previous player exit interviews showed a level of discontent toward Davie.
It is also worth noting that it is being reported that drug tests have been compromised.
As for the program’s part, New Mexico has released a statement, though it isn’t yet too descriptive.
“I can confirm there is an investigation underway in Athletics,” a UNM spokesperson said. “We are not going to comment on the details or the individuals involved until the investigation is complete.”
Taking over a team that had won a total of three games in the three seasons (from 2009 to 2011) prior to his arrival in Albuquerque in 2012, Davie led the Lobos to 11 wins his first three years before winning seven in 2015. He then led the team to nine victories last season.
This is clearly an awful look for New Mexico. While the court of public opinion will likely weigh in on this matter far too quickly, just remember that an investigation should uncover all truths regarding this matter.
Point being: Let’s allow the investigation to happen and conclude before we start asking for people to lose their jobs, scholarships, or anything else in the process.
