Carl Pelini Resigned From FAU For "Illegal Drug Use," Escorted Off Campus By Police

FAU coach Carl Pelini and defensive coordinator Pete Rekstis resigned over admitted “illegal drug use” at a social event according to FAU athletic director Pete Chun.

The two coaches were escorted from campus by police, but not arrested.

Details have yet to be reported. A number of questions remain unanswered. But FAU’s decision is not surprising. Should recreational drug use be worse than Gary Pinkel’s drunk driving incident, which resulted in a one game suspension? Or Frank Solich? Or Jim Harbaugh?

Chun was a longtime associate AD at Ohio State. Your FAU next coach rumor mill will begin with anyone who had ties there. How badly does Jim Tressel want to get back in the game?

[Update: FAU AD Pat Chun was interviewed shortly after the press conference by Evan Cohen.]
