ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) -New Mexico football coach Mike Locksley, on the job less than six months, has been accused of sexual harassment by a former administrative assistant.
Sylvia Lopez filed a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. She worked under Locksley at the Lobos football office before transferring last month, then quit her university job May 15.
Locksley did not immediately respond to telephone messages left Friday by The Associated Press at New Mexico's football office and through an athletic department publicist.
Athletic director Paul Krebs said Friday the university is taking the complaint seriously. He stood behind the first-year coach, calling Locksley ``an outstanding individual.''
