Hook ‘em & Book ‘em

Have you ever heard the name Augie Garrido? He holds the most wins (1,629) and five national championships as the University of Texas baseball coach.
Augie Garrido is also the newest member of the DUI Coaches Team. Bevo is NOT impressed.
Austin Police Department spokesman James Mason confirmed Garrido’s arrest and charge and the University of Texas handed Garrido an indefinite suspension with pay.
“Texas baseball coach Augie Garrido has been placed on indefinite suspension following his arrest earlier today for alleged driving while intoxicated,” Texas athletic director DeLoss Dodds said in a press release.
“The suspension, with pay, is pending until further information can be gathered. This is a difficult and regrettable situation that we are taking very seriously. I spoke with Coach Garrido and he’s devastated and realizes he made a serious mistake.
At least he was awake when the police approached his car that puts him ahead of Tony LaRussa.
Matthew McConaughey’s advise to Coach Garrido, stay home next time you’ll skip the DWI charges (but keep your pants on).
