Last week, former University of New Mexico football player Brian Urlacher and the university’s President Robert Frank were asked about the idea of a sports bar-restaurant collaboration rumor that had been swirling for months.
“We are excited that he might want to put in a sports bar or restaurant on our south campus,” Frank said Friday about Urlacher.
At the game on Nov. 8th where Urlacher Lobo jersey was retired, UNM Director of Communications Dianne Anderson said Urlacher answered some questions regarding the project. Urlacher said that he thought it would be a good fit and is in talks with the university about the possible collaboration.
Urlacher’s name was one of the first mentioned during UNM south campus development meetings.
