Apparently, one member of the Kansas State coaching staff celebrated the Wildcats’ long-awaited home victory against rival (and then undefeated) Kansas Jayhawks a little too much, as Wildcats associate men’s basketball coach Dalonte Hill was arrested early Thursday morning for suspicion of driving under the influence.
Charges have not yet been filed and Hill was released after posting a $500 bail. In the KC Star, Hill gave a prepared statement apologizing for his actions:
“I want to apologize for this incident,” Hill said in a prepared statement. “I am embarrassed for the attention this has brought to our program. I regret this situation taking away any attention from our team’s accomplishments and from our preparation for Saturday’s game with Missouri.”
Considering the magnitude of K-State’s victory, I’m kinda surprised the local constables didn’t just escort Hill home in order to keep this little incident off the books… not that I’m condoning such actions. Hill will be suspended from coaching when Kansas State plays Missouri tomorrow.
