The Nightmare Is Over In Albuquerque

Yes, folks, what you heard was true. We have the first head coach firing of the season after just four weeks. Mike Locksley has been deservedly canned after going 2-26 in two and a third seasons. The last straw was this past Saturday when New Mexico lost to FCS school Sam Houston State in overtime 48-45. Fan support for the program had plummetted under Locksley. This past Saturday was the Lobos lowest home attendance at University Stadium in nineteen years--16,313 fans.

Also this past weekend, a Lobos recruit was arrested with charges of an aggravated DWI, minor in possession of alcohol, driving without a license, and reckless driving while in a car owned by Locksley. Keep in mind Locksley was accused of sexual harrassment of a secretary before he even coached his first game at New Mexico. During his first season, he violently attacked his wide receivers coach after a loss and was subsequently suspended for ten days.

This guy was the biggest joke of a head coach I have ever witnessed in all of the years I have been a fan of college pigskin. I had been calling for Locksley's removal on every single edition of my column On The Hot Seat since I began this blog. He is finally gone. Defensive coordinator George Barlow will serve as the interim coach for the remainder of the season.
Mike Locksley is a clown
