ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - New Mexico coach Craig Neal isn’t going anywhere any time soon.

The University of New Mexico’s vice president for athletics, Paul Krebs, released a statement Friday saying he wanted to end any speculation about the coach’s future following the Lobos’ loss in the Mountain West Conference quarterfinals.

Krebs says the team went through a difficult season with several injuries to key players but that Neal will continue with his coaching duties next season.

The Lobos are 17-14, and Neal has acknowledged the frustration of fans.

Neal is in the fourth year of a contract that runs through 2020.

Krebs says the team’s performance on the court needs to improve, but he noted that he’s pleased with the incoming recruiting class. He also says he has high expectations for the program.
