ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – The University of New Mexico Board of Regents has denied Football Coach Bob Davie’s request for an appeal of his suspension.

Last week, UNM announced Davie would be suspended for 30 days following multiple investigations.

Documents reveal Davie is accused of using the “n-word,” as well as obstructing a rape investigation involving one of his players. Coach Davie, however, denies those allegations. 

There is no word on when the 30-day unpaid suspension might begin.
