December 21, 2018 – Correspondent Khalil Ekulona sits down with UNM Men’s Soccer Head Coach Jeremy Fishbein after a tough season, which looks to be the program’s last. Fishbein talks in depth about what the experience was like for him and his players, after the UNM Board of Regents voted to cut his program after this year. He also talks about the possibility the program may still be revived with help from renewed support from the legislature and Governor-Elect Michelle Lujan Grisham.
