Authorities seize records of ex-athletic director’s wife

November 16, 2018

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Authorities have seized the bank records of the wife of former University of New Mexico Athletic Director Paul Krebs as they continue to investigate the athletics department’s finances.

The Albuquerque Journal reports the state Attorney General’s Office served a search warrant on Marjori Krebs’ records, seeking information about a large payment she made from her bank account to a credit card her husband used to make a $25,000 donation.

The investigation launched last year following the discovery that the university used nearly $25,000 in public money to pay some private donor expenses on a 2015 Scotland fundraising golf trip.

Attorney Gene Gallegos says Paul Krebs has never denied making a $25,000 donation to the UNM Foundation, and it’s “not illegal, unethical or improper.”

Paul Krebs retired last year.
