New Mexico State fires basketball coach amid hazing investigation

New Mexico State fired men’s basketball coach Greg Heiar on Tuesday amid an investigation into allegations of hazing within the program.

The university’s chancellor, Dan Arvizu, announced the move in a letter to the campus community, adding that it was his decision to terminate Heiar, who was in his first season as the Aggies’ head coach. 

“As I’ve stated previously, hazing has no place on our campus, and those found responsible will be held accountable for their actions,” Arvizu wrote. “I am committed to the safety and well-being of all members of our campus community, as well as to the integrity of our university.”
