Alford told his team about the move Saturday morning and explained to reporters a few hours later that it was a tough decision. The move was a shock to Lobos fans because Alford had just signed a new 10-year contract that could have been worth up to $2 million a year.
The Lobos have won back-to-back conference championships and have made three NCAA tournament appearances.
Former Lobo Club president Scott Creagan says everyone is upset because Alford did such a wonderful job.
