ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – University of New Mexico Head football coach Bob Davie says he will not overreact but, will hand out in house discipline to his leading running back Teriyon Gipson due to off the field issues brought to light last week.

Gipson was arrested in Dallas back in January for marijuana possession and unlawful possession of a firearm. The Albuquerque Journal reported that Gipson had eight outstanding warrants for traffic citations and failure to report in court at the time of the arrest.

Gipson’s family told Coach Davie that they had an attorney handling the warrants and citations. The gun charge has since been dropped but, Gipson does have a court date set for October 27 in Dallas on the marijuana charge.

Coach Davie didn’t hear of any of it until last week. “I am disappointed that Teriyon, really Teriyon’s family, didn’t come to me immediately with full disclosure,” said Davie. “I understand they made that decision and what basis they made that decision. I don’t agree with it but, I do understand why they did it.”

Gipson missed the Lobos last football game due to a concussion. He has since returned to practice and is expected to play when the Lobos host San Jose State for homecoming and their Mountain West opener October 1.
