FORT WORTH, Texas -- TCU women's basketball coach Jeff Mittie was expected to leave with his team Thursday for a first-round NCAA Tournament game in Philadelphia, despite his arrest in Kansas early Wednesday for suspicion of drunken driving, officials said.

It was not clear if his arrest would prevent Mittie from coaching No. 6 seed TCU in Saturday's first-round game against No. 11 seed Temple.

Mittie, 37, was pulled over when a Newton, Kan., police officer observed him swerving in the road and turning the vehicle's headlights on and off, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported Thursday. He was arrested at 3:50 a.m.

The coach was detained in the Harvey County Detention Center for investigation of DUI and was released Wednesday morning on a $1,000 bond, Deputy Keith Blackwood said.

Mittie, who was driving a rental car south of Interstate 135, had traveled to Salina, Kan., to scout a potential recruit at the National Junior College Athletic Association's Division I basketball championships. The coach was at TCU's Wednesday afternoon practice.

Mittie is in his fifth season and guided No. 20 TCU (24-6) to the best regular-season record in program history.
