His team's season over, upstanding Christian and midwestern "man of integrity" Frank Solich was found passed out behind the wheel of his car Saturday, and convicted of DUI today:ATHENS, Ohio -- Ohio coach Frank Solich was convicted of drunken driving Monday, two days after police spotted him slumped over the wheel of his vehicle.All together now: If you were coaching Ohio U., you'd be drinking too!
Solich, in his first season with the Bobcats, pleaded no contest and was ordered to complete a three-day driver intervention program. He also had his license suspended for 180 days and was fined $250.
The former Nebraska coach apologized in court. He declined to comment afterward.
The university, in a statement released before his court appearance, said Solich would remain in charge of the Bobcats as it monitored the case.
Solich, 61, appeared to be passed out when police found him Saturday night in the vehicle, which was facing the wrong direction on a one-way street and in drive, according to a police report.
"I know Frank as a man of impeccable integrity, and I am confident that he will respond to this situation in a positive manner and use these circumstances to better teach others, including his players, the importance of making wise decisions," Ohio athletic director Kirby Hocutt said in the statement.
The Bobcats were 4-7 in their first year under Solich, who grew up in Ohio.
Thank you, thank you. SMQ will be here, making fun of the humiliating fortunes of others, all week.
Meanwhile, Rich Brooks has suspended sophomore receiver Dicky Lyons, Jr., son of UK great Dicky Lyons, for, um...team bowl-watching parties?LEXINGTON, Ky. -- Kentucky has suspended wide receiver Dicky Lyons Jr. from its football team indefinitely because of a violation of team rules, coach Rich Brooks said Monday.Bold SMQ prediction: Lyons' Wildcat career will last longer than Brooks', who he thought would be gone by now.
The university did not elaborate on Brooks' statement.
Lyons, a 5-foot-11, 190-pound sophomore from New Orleans, redshirted this season because of persistent hamstring problems. He played in seven games last season, catching two passes for 11 yards and returning five kickoffs, but missed time because of a broken collarbone.
