Defensive coordinator George Barlow to coach for interim

Mike Locksley is no longer head coach of the Lobo football team.
Paul Krebs announced Sunday that Locksley has been relieved of his duties and that defensive coordinator George Barlow will take over as interim coach for the rest of the year.

Locksley’s Lobo career was riddled with scandals off the field, including an altercation with former assistant coach J.B. Gerald. He leaves the program with a 2-26 record, a winning percentage just above 7 percent.

The writing was on the wall after the Lobos started off the season 0-4 with big losses to Arkansas and Texas Tech and an overtime loss on Saturday to Sam Houston State, a Division 1-AA team.

On Saturday afternoon a possible recruit was pulled over and charged with a DWI in a car registered to Locksley.

The team held a meeting Sunday afternoon, at which Locksley told the players he would no longer be their head coach.
