ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) -An Albuquerque lawyer claims a New Mexico football administrative assistant was improperly fired after coach Mike Locksley determined she wasn't ``a younger gal'' who would entice recruits.
However, athletic director Paul Krebs disputed the allegations by attorney Whitney Warner concerning her client, Sylvia Lopez.
Warner told the Albuquerque Journal that Locksley told the 54-year-old Lopez she was too old to be attractive to recruits.
Warner didn't return several messages left by The Associated Press seeking clarification and additional comment.
A university spokesman said Locksley, New Mexico's first-year coach who was hired in December, wouldn't address the matter.
