Texas baseball coach [tag]Augie Garrido[/tag] was arrested last weekend for driving while intoxicated, on Friday he was suspended from four games this season by Texas athletic director [tag]DeLoss Dodds[/tag]. The two men spoke in front of reporters yesterday, Dodds expressing his confidence in Garrido and Garrido his heartfelt remorse for his mistake. Watch below:

A four game suspension might not send a strong enough message to Texas athletes but Coach Garrido’s emotions and regret are real. He deserves a second chance and hopefully he takes advantage of it. The 2009 Texas baseball season will be one where both Garrido and the team need to bounce back.
