Augie Garrido pleads guilty

  • Text size: + -

University of Texas baseball coach Augie Garrido pleaded guilty to charges of driving while intoxicated in a Travis County court Monday morning.

Police arrested Garrido on Jan. 17 and charged him with drunken driving.

He publicly apologized for what he called a "serious
mistake."

The UT athletic director suspended Garrido for four games. A judge will sentence him on April 30.

Garrido said he is prepared for whatever sentence comes his way.

"That's not up to me," he said. "I'm just going to do what's right here. Other people get to decide that."

Garrido has won five national championships, and was the first
coach to win College World Series titles with two schools.
