Willard failed several field sobriety tests
LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- Louisville assistant basketball coach Kevin Willard was arrested early Sunday and charged with driving under the influence of alcohol.
Willard, 28, was arrested about five hours after Louisville's victory win over Tulane at Freedom Hall, police spokeswoman Alicia Smiley said. Willard failed several field sobriety tests, she said.
Willard, the son of Holy Cross coach Ralph Willard, was due to be arraigned Tuesday.
"Even though he is close to me, he will be dealt with just as anyone else on my staff or team would be," Louisville coach Rick Pitino said. "Whatever legal penalty he may or may not face, the penalty within our basketball program will be dealt with in a serious manner."
