Kevin Sumlin, currently the co-offensive coordinator at Maryland, was arrested and charged with driving under the influence over the weekend in Tampa, Fla.
Amid Maryland’s bye week, Sumlin was arrested early Saturday morning, per a Hillsborough County (Fla.) police report. He refused a breathalyzer test, pleaded not guilty and waived arraignment.
Maryland athletics has yet to comment. The Maryland student newspaper, The Diamondback, was first to report the news.
Per the report, there was no crash or property damage leading to Sumlin’s arrest.
Sumlin, 59, has served as the head coach of Houston (2008-11), Texas A&M (2012-17) and Arizona (2018-20). He is in his first season at Maryland as the co-OC, the tight ends coach and the associate head coach.
As a head coach, Sumlin had a career 95-63 record, including 4-3 in bowl games.
Maryland (5-2, 2-2 Big Ten) plays at Northwestern this Saturday.
