U. New Mexico Football Coach Denies Allegations of Racism

davie111

The football coach at The University of New Mexico is dismissing a set of damning allegations claiming that he treats white players better than black ones. Coach Bob Davie says that the accusations are “unfounded and untrue.”

The coach received an open letter that was also distributed to the media, stating that he gives white players preferences over black ones.  For example, the author says that white players are not punished for smoking marijuana, while black players are.   It also says that his penalties against black players are often harsher than the ones given out to white ones.

Lobos athletic director Paul Krebs says that after reviewing the letter and speaking with Davie, he’s decided that the allegations are untrue.  So, that must be all that it takes – talking to the coach and letting him tell you that he’s innocent.  Maybe a deeper investigation is called for. 

Davie is a former coach at Notre Dame and was known as a great defensive coordinator.   The allegations against him may h**t his recruiting efforts, since many of the best athletes being sought after by coaches are African American.  The population of the state of New Mexico is only 2.55 percent African American and the governor of the state, Susana Martinez, has been heavily criticized as being unresponsive and disrespectful to the African American community. 

Maybe the best players should consider going elsewhere, since both Martinez and Davie are pretty quick to dismiss allegations of racism without seeing if the accuser has a point.  This might not be the best state for black people.

    You expect Coach Davie to admit that he is racist.here is a supposedly educated man and yet so ignorant. If common sence were so common every one would have it.

    You know I can write an open letter and make accusation about any one. This has no credibility
    whatsoever, and never should have been presented with no documentation, it’s worse than hear say!

    well what u expect, of course a mexican mayor is not going to help black people or fight for their rights. mexicans are just as racist as white people and its so easy to notice. as soon as they come to this country they immediately try to fit in with white people and die trying to get accepted. its crazy.. For some reason they think they are better and they are far far far from it.

    Rob how do you know that the Black players stood up for the coach?? Why would that important piece of information be left out. You would think that they would have gotten those players to come forth and vouche for their coach if this accusation was untrue. Where did this accusation come from???? If it’s true then that’s really sad. Him saying it’s not true but not having any of his Black players stand up for him is not going to be sufficient. He needs all of his players to be behind him if this isn’t true.

      It depends on the black players. There are always uncle toming so-called black people who will stick with the Master. So it depends on the characters of the black guys involved in this.

    What the story fails to mention is that several of his black players on the New Mexico Lobo team stood up for the coach and called the letter B.S. !!! If you are gonna make that serious accusations against someone be a man and out your name on it !!!
