Texas coach Augie Garrido was fined $500 and sentenced to four days in jail plus 180 days of driver’s license suspension on Thursday morning for pleading guilty to a Feb. 2 drunken driving charge.
College baseball’s all-time winningest coach took full responsibility for his actions and was commended by judge Elisabeth Earle for being a role model for those who find themselves in his situation.
"Do what’s right," Garrido said. "I did what was wrong, and now I’m going to make it right by doing what’s right. They (UT baseball players) did that all season."
Back in February, Garrido was suspended for the Longhorns’ season-opening four-game series against Illinois-Chicago. Now that his legal proceedings have concluded, he can finally move on.
"Don’t drink and drive," Garrido said. "It’ll never be over. Now, it will be a responsibility to make good out of it and do good with it."
