New Mexico football coach faces heat over slur allegations

Posted: Updated:
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) -

New Mexico football coach Bob Davie continues to face questions after a report says witnesses reported him using racial slurs.
  
A report from the school's Office of Equal Opportunity released Thursday said witnesses told the office Davie some variation of the N-word at a practice and told four black players on a golf cart they were sitting on "a white man's tractor."
  
Davie told investigators through his attorney that he never used the racial epithet and didn't remember the golf cart comment at a camp in Ruidoso, New Mexico.
  
The school announced Thursday it was suspending Davie without pay for 30 days following multiple investigations that examined whether he and coaching staff interfered with criminal investigations or misconduct cases involving players.
  
Davie is expected to speak to reporters Friday.
