Rough Day At One Buc Palace Got RougherSeptember 1st, 2010
Joe takes no joy whatsoever in writing about how a Bucs assistant coach got popped for a DUI last night. That’s not to say Joe enjoys writing about any misdeeds. But if Joe is going to bring you the news of players misbehaving, so too must he with coaches.
After a day in which the Bucs let loose Kardashian-chasing Derrick Ward and found out Aqib Talib was suspended for the season opener against Cleveland, Bucs assistant defensive line coach Chris Mosley was popped last night for a DUI, reports Josh Poltilove of the Tampa Tribune.
A Ford sport utility vehicle driven by Mosley didn’t stop for a red light on Armenia Avenue, so an officer pulled it over late Tuesday, a police report states. The officer said Mosley’s breath smelled of alcohol and that Mosley had glassy, bloodshot eyes and swayed while standing.
Mosley was arrested and charged with driving under the influence after failing a field sobriety test, police said.
In 2009, Mosley served as an assistant offensive line coach for the Buccaneers. Prior to that, he coached tight ends at Princeton University in 2008 and was a graduate assistant at Boston College in 2007.
Joe’s not sure if not stopping for a red light means he blew the red light or he didn’t come to a full stop. Big, big difference.
Sad way to start a morning for Joe. More than sad for Mosley. He better hope the Bucs do well because Joe believes he’ll have a hard time getting a college gig with a DUI on his record.
