UNM regents won't accept Lobos coach's appeal of suspension

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - The University of New Mexico's Board of Regents won't accept football coach Bob Davie's appeal of his 30-day suspension.

The Albuquerque Journal reports that the seven-member board made the decision in executive session Tuesday, but didn't release a reason for not accepting Davie's appeal.

UNM interim President Chaouki Abdallah announced the suspension last Thursday after the school released the results of two recent investigations involving Davie and the Lobos' football program.

Davie was suspended without pay following the investigations that examined whether he and coaching staff interfered with criminal investigations or misconduct cases involving players.

Davie is two seasons into a six-year contract that runs through the 2021 season and pays him $822,690 annually, not including bonuses and incentives.
