The Line: UNM Athletics Back in the News

1308 Line UNM Club Sports

August 23, 2019 – Two interesting announcements about New Mexico’s flagship university came in the news this week. A grand jury indicted former UNM Athletic Director Paul Krebs on seven felony counts in connection with a 2015 golf trip to Scotland, paid for in part with public money. And an article in the Daily Lobo announced the return of men’s soccer and men’s and women’s ski teams to UNM – but only as club sports. Gene Grant and The Line opinion panel tackle both issues concerning athletics at UNM.

September 14, 2018 – The state’s Attorney General’s Office recently released a 32-page report outlining what it says is a “disturbing pattern of concealment and deliberate misrepresentation” at the University of New Mexico. A large portion of the report focuses on the UNM’s former athletic director, Paul Krebs, and transparency complaints filed with the AG’s office.

Gene Grant and the Line opinion panelists debate what UNM needs to do to rebuild trust while the investigation by the Attorney General’s Office continues.
