The $1 million question surrounding the buyout of former Lobos basketball coach Steve Alford is still unanswered. Monday afternoon Alford, for the first time, formally contacted the University of New Mexico on the matter stating “he offered to comply with the terms of his previous contract” and its $150,000 buyout and that “he believes his last day was March 30,” according to an email obtained by the Journal written by Associate University Counsel Kimberly N. Bell.
