New Mexico State University (NMSU) Football Coach Resign After Huffing Incidents

Via Las Cruces Sun- News

The New Mexico State University (NMSU) offensive line coach resigned following a pair of criminal citations involving an addiction to huffing.

The Las Cruces police cited the coach twice in a four-day span for huffing compressed gas. The first incident occurred when an officer found the man, "slumped over sitting in his vehicle and apparently having seizures." The officer reported that he saw the man inhale compressed gas from a canister.  The second incident occurred inside the bathroom of a local drug store. Police responded after the man had locked himself in a bathroom and was huffing from the duster cans.

The coach and his wife told police that he suffers from an addiction and the family is returning to their home in Colorado to place him in rehab.  The coach officially resigned from NMSU for "on-going health issues".
