ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - On a day when UNM Football Coach Bob Davie was supposed to be talking about Lobo recruits, his news conference took a turn as questions came up about an anonymous letter floating around that makes serious allegations about him.
"Probably the same reaction it's been in my 35 years of coaching and broadcasting that anonymous letters are anonymous letters," Davie, said.
The letter sent to media outlets three weeks ago and claims to be from unnamed seniors on last year's team.
It claims Davie dishes out harsher punishment for black players than he does for white players. That he tolerates white players smoking pot but not black players and that he's tougher on Mike Locksley's recruits than he is on his own.
It also talks about how Davie got into a locker room fight with a black player after the Boise State loss last fall and that players went to the athletic director but nothing happened.
Here's what Davie had to say when asked if the school needed to respond to this.
"We might be releasing statements every day addressing anonymous opinions on something," Davie said.
Athletic Director Paul Krebs did release a statement.
It says "We firmly believe, based on the information we have and the fact that the letter was sent anonymously, that the allegations are unfounded and untrue"
KRQE News 13 asked Krebs specifically about the allegation that players went to him after the alleged locker room fight and he says that never happened.
