A New Mexico State assistant basketball coach was named in an NCAA notice of allegations on January 8, stemming from his time at Texas Christian University. According to a federal indictment, in an incident secretly recorded at the Cosmopolitan Hotel in Las Vegas, Barker received $6,000 from former sports agent Christian Dawkins in 2017, in what was an effort by Dawkins to have Barker steer certain players to his agency. On Monday, New Mexico State athletic director Mario Moccia responded to Barker being named in the NCAA’s notice of allegations to TCU. “New Mexico State was not a part of the notice of allegations that TCU received.
