Bob Davie began his suspension on Saturday. New Mexico's head coach has been suspended for 30 days by the university.

The 63-year-old head coach's suspension comes following some pretty terrible allegations. Davie has allegedly used racial slurs against players and interfered with a rape case.

Davie, according to KOAT Action News, allegedly held a team meeting in which he told players to "“get some dirt on this w***e” after a New Mexico student claimed she was raped by a football player. Players were allegedly telling people that Davie “was going to take care of it.”

Here are some of the other allegations, from the report from UNM’s Office of Equal Opportunity, obtained by KOAT Action News:

· Players allege during a football camp in Ruidoso, New Mexico, four African American football players were sitting on a golf cart when Davie walked over and said, "What are you doing on a white man's tractor?" He also said golf was a white man's sport.

· Players also allege that during an argument with a former football player, Davie said to the player, "I'm your [n-word]."


· The same ex-player reported that players would call the football program “Auschwitz” because of how bad Davie made it, and they would call him “Massa Davie, ” referring to the slave term for a master.

· A retired employee of the Athletic Department said she heard stories that Davie may have lunged at a football player and may have grabbed a player’s head when he was being treated for a concussion.

Davie has been New Mexico's head coach since 2012. He's gone 30-45, including a 3-9 season in 2017.
