PHILADELPHIA -- TCU women's coach Jeff Mittie was reprimanded Friday for his arrest for suspicion of drunken driving, but will coach the Lady Frogs in the NCAA tournament.
Mittie tearfully apologized for the arrest, which came three days before the Lady Frogs' (24-6) first-round tournament game Saturday against Temple.
"I certainly regret that this has been a distraction. It's been a tough week. I regret that for them," Mittie said, pausing as he choked up. "They've worked very hard."
Mittie was required to seek an alcohol evaluation to determine if he needed treatment and complete a state approved alcohol awareness education program. Mittie also must attend an alcohol victims impact panel presentation and perform substantial community service.
Mittie could also be fined or lose pay.
"I'm here in Philadelphia preparing this team the best way I know how," Mittie said. "They're doing an unbelievable job of working hard."
Mittie was pulled over early Wednesday. The coach was detained for investigation of DUI and was released on $1,000 bond.
The coach was at practice Wednesday and told the team of his arrest at a meeting.
"He cried and I've never seen him cry before," forward Sandora Irvin said. "We let him know it's OK. People make mistakes."
"This week needs to be more about playing Temple and that's what we really focused on," forward Tracy Wynn said. "We kind of turned it into a positive. We're ready to step it up even more."
