Bob Davie is primarily known for his tenure as the head coach of the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and, after that, he spent considerable time as an on-air personality in the college football world over at ESPN. Since then, Davie was hired as the head coach at New Mexico prior to the 2012 season and he has posted a 28-37 record during his stint with the Lobos.
Now, though, a report has surfaced that does not treat Davie in the most favorable light and it comes with serious allegations that under investigation. NMFishbowl.com brings word that the University of New Mexico has hired an external investigator to seek further information into allegations made against Davie.
The report indicates that player mistreatment has been alleged and, in addition, the drug-testing process for the football program and its athletes is reportedly a target of the investigation. The report does not provide further information as to what specific allegations led to the investigation but it provides a statement from New Mexico spokesperson Cinnamon Blair.
“I can confirm there is an investigation underway in Athletics. We are not going to comment on the details or the individuals involved until the investigation is complete.”
More information could be available in the future but, for now, we know there is a report that alleges rather serious things when discussing player treatment and it targets Bob Davie. Stay tuned.
