Chronic Drunk Charged With DUI

Oklahoma State basketball coach Eddie "The Alch-y" Sutton was charged with a DUI after his car struck another vehicle. Coach Sutton will take a "medical leave of absence" from the team for the remainder of the season.

It's hard to imagine Sutton, who was pretty close to retirement age anyway, returning to the team next year, though he does strike me as one of those crotchety old guys that may have to be pried from his seat on the bench by the coroner. For the remainder of this season, anyway, his son Sean Sutton will coach the team.
