(AP) A University of New Mexico official says former Lobos basketball coach Steve Alford is willing to pay a $200,000 buyout for leaving the Albuquerque school to take a job at UCLA but he won't pay the $1 million payment that New Mexico wants.


According to the Albuquerque Journal (http://bit.ly/14L4Aaj ), an email written by a university lawyer says Alford is offering to comply with terms of his previous contract with New Mexico.


Alford on March 18 signed a term sheet agreeing to a new 10-year contract with New Mexico that included a $1 million buyout. It was to take effect April 1, two days Alford announced his resignation.


New Mexico contends it's owed the $1 million buyout because the previous contract required a 30-day notice of termination.
