Former Arizona football coach Kevin Sumlin was arrested over the weekend in Florida on suspicion of DUI.

The 59-year-old Sumlin, who is currently the co-offensive coordinator and tight ends coach at Maryland, was cited around 1 a.m. Saturday near Tampa, Fla., per Taylor Lyons of Sumlin reportedly declined to take a breathalyzer test, resulting in an automatic suspension of his license.

Maryland (5-2, 2-2 Big Ten) had been on a bye last weekend. The school has yet to release a statement.

Sumlin is in his first season with the Terrapins’ staff after coaching in the USFL for one year.

He coached three seasons at Arizona, going 9-20 from 2018-20, dropping his last 12 games including a 70-7 home loss to ASU that led to his firing the following day.
