It’s not like head coach Mike Locksley was burning things up for the Lobos: in just over two seasons at the University of New Mexico, he had amassed a record of 2-26, including two back-t0-back 1-11 seasons. Yes, he inherited some problems from previous coaches (including NCAA sanctions limiting scholarships) but allegedly also had his share of on–and off–field problems. The most recent? A young football player from Chicago who was arrested for DUI in a vehicle that he described to cops as “coach’s car” but that technically belonged to Locksley’s son. Either way, sounds like the University had enough of Coach Locksley and he will depart Albuquerque with some lovely parting gifts, including a $1.5 million contract buy-out.
Where can we get a deal like that?
