COLUMBIA — Missouri football coach Gary Pinkel plans to meet with reporters Monday afternoon after his recent drunken-driving arrest and guilty plea.
The law firm that represented Pinkel in court announced Monday morning that the suspended coach will offer his first public comments since his arrest Wednesday.
Pinkel did not coach during Missouri's win over Texas Tech as part of a one-week unpaid suspension. He is expected to return to work on Thanksgiving as the Tigers prepare to face Kansas on Saturday in their final regular season game.
Pinkel pleaded guilty two days after his arrest to a misdemeanor charge of driving while intoxicated. He received a 30-day suspended sentence along with two years probation.
