Cincinnati’s Bob Huggins cited for drunk driving

Cincinnati, OH (Sports Network) – University of Cincinnati men’s basketball
coach Bob Huggins was pulled over by police earlier this week for allegedly
driving under the influence.

WLWT television is reporting that police in Fairfax, a suburb of Cincinnati,
stopped Huggins for failing to maintain his lane. The police report states
that Huggins’ speech was slurred and he smelled of alcohol.

Huggins was ticketed but not jailed, according to Fairfax police officials.

The 50-year-old Huggins, who is preparing for his 16th season at Cincinnati,
is one of the winningest active coaches in Division I, having compiled a
542-191 record in 23 seasons. He is 374-119 as Cincinnati’s head coach,
including a 25-7 mark last year. Huggins has directed UC to postseason play in
each of his 15 seasons there.

He also coached at Akron for five years before joining Cincinnati and spent
three years at NAIA Walsh College.
