Mike Locksley's Statement
The following is a statement from University of New Mexico head football coach Mike Locksley regarding an altercation with a member of his coaching staff:
"I acknowledge that an altercation took place last Sunday (Sept. 20) between myself and assistant coach J.B. Gerald during a meeting with the offensive coaching staff.
I apologized to Coach Gerald, the coaching staff and our team for my poor judgement. I would also like to apologize to Lobo fans.
Like I remind our players, when mistakes are made, you acknowledge them and deal with the consequences.
Our focus is now preparing to play a very good Texas Tech team Saturday in Lubbock."
More to come.
