New Mexico Coach Mike Locksley won't be on the sidelines when the Lobos play Nevada Las Vegas this month, part of a 10-day suspension issued Tuesday as punishment for his role in a fight with an assistant coach.
Locksley initially had been reprimanded. Athletic Director Paul Krebs said during a news conference the coach won't be allowed to have any contact with the team until Oct. 25, one day after Las Vegas visits Albuquerque. The Lobos do not play this week.
