Former New Mexico Coach Files Another Lawsuit Against Mike Locksley, University


New Mexico head coach Mike Locksley is possibly having one of the worst tenures as a head coach. He has a 2-22 record in two years on the job and has been accused of sexual harassment, ageism within his first spring in Albuquerque. Then it got worse as he punched then-wide receivers coach J.B. Gerald and that story escalated as blackmail allegations surfaced with the former wide receivers coach wanting $500,000 for media silence.

Gerald filed a suit against Locksley and the university back in August of 2010 -- a year after the incident -- and this past month a federal court dismissed the case because it was not strong enough. However, that decision allowed Gerald to file another case but this time as hostile work environment charges.

Gerald has said the case is more about closure then it is about money.

The Locksley haters can just add this to the list of reasons why he should be fired. They may get their wish soon enough since Locksley agreed to a restructured contract that lowered his buyout. So, we will see how many more chances Locksley gets, but my gut is that he will be fired unless he can get the Lobos to a bowl game this year.
