ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Former UNM Women’s Basketball Coach Yvonne Sanchez is asking for privacy after being released from her position with the university on Friday.

In a lengthy statement released Saturday night, she talked about her termination. Sanchez says while she’s disheartened, she does not believe that it was racially driven. She believes Athletic Director Paul Krebs is under major pressure to make changes in the athletic programs and she was the easiest target.

She also claims there are many flaws in the evaluation process, on top of discrepancies across athletic program expectations.
