The University of New Mexico has finished paying the buyout for former basketball head coach Craig Neal. 

The coach was fired in 2017 after an underwhelming record. Neal was in the midst of a contract so the school had to pay a $1 million buyout. 

KRQE has learned the UNM completed the payments on March 31. UNM says that it was mostly funded by university reserves.
