Tim Welsh's first month at Hofstra didn't end so well.
Hours after learning through media reports that Welsh was charged with driving while intoxicated, the school suspended their new coach without pay "effective immediately."
Welsh, whose hiring was made official on March 31, was driving his Lexus in Levittown, N.Y., around 1 a.m. when an officer noticed he was stopped at a green light, asleep at the wheel.
The school will investigate. Some think he'll be fired, but I'm not so sure. The DUI could take months to resolve in court (if Welsh contests it), which would then stretch into the season. If Welsh gets into the season and has the Pride playing well, he could stick around.
But he sure made it hard on himself.
