ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Defensive coordinator Kevin Cosgrove will serve as acting football coach for New Mexico while head coach Bob Davie serves a 30-day suspension.

Athletic Director Eddie Nunez announced the appointment of Cosgrove as acting coach on Friday, a day after university President announced that Davie’s suspension will begin Saturday.

Abdallah announced the suspension last week after the school released the results of two recent investigations involving Davie and the football program.

The investigations examined whether Davie and his coaching staff interfered with criminal investigations or misconduct cases involving players.


UNM’s Board of Regents decided Tuesday not to accept Davie’s appeal of the suspension.

Davie is two seasons into a six-year contract that runs through the 2021 season and pays him $822,690 annually, not including bonuses and incentives.
