Report: Sacramento coach Musselman arrested

Sacramento, CA (Sports Network) – Eric Musselman, first-year head coach
of the Sacramento Kings, was reportedly arrested on Saturday on suspicion of
driving under the influence.

The Sacramento Bee reported that authorities arrested Musselman early Saturday
morning after cutting off another motorist in midtown Sacramento. Musselman
also reportedly failed a field sobriety test and had a blood alcohol level
above the legal limit of .08 percent according to authorities.

The Kings defeated the Utah Jazz on Friday night in Musselman’s first home
game at ARCO Arena.

Musselman, who was an assistant coach with the Memphis Grizzlies for nearly
two seasons and a former head coach of Golden State, replaced Rick
Adelman in June and became the 20th head coach in Kings’ history.

Musselman compiled a 75-89 record in two seasons (2002-04) as head coach of
the Warriors. Golden State had the NBA’s most improved record in 2003 at
38-44, which was 17 more wins than the previous season. Musselman was the
runner-up for the NBA Coach of the Year award that season.
