University of New Mexico Deputy Athletic Director Brad Hutchins has been fired. And the decision will cost Lobo athletics a $175,000 buyout that was negotiated down from $225,000 called for on his contract. Citing a yearlong evaluation process of the department and the need for continuing to change the way UNM athletics has gone about its business, especially in terms of securing fiscal stability and accountability, Athletic Director Eddie Nuñez confirmed Hutchins signed termination papers on Wednesday and suggested more change could be coming. “Changes will be continuing for UNM as we approach the end of this year,” Nuñez said in a statement. “We have a mutual payout agreement of $175,000. Brad will soon be leaving the Lobos family and we wish him nothing but the best in the future. I want to thank him for his service. “In coming days and weeks, I will be announcing other changes at UNM. We will be replacing Brad, and we will be discussing additional guidelines and policies consistent with building the kind of athletic department we believe is expected.” Former Athletic Director Paul Krebs on March 16, 2016, extended Hutchins a multi-year contract through June 2020. That contract originally paid Hutchins $140,000 annually but was contractually bumped to $150,000 on July 1, 2017. -Geoff Grammer, Albuquerque Journal, Read More
