LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Nebraska women’s tennis head coach Scott Jacobson has been suspended without pay following his arrest last week on suspicion of driving drunk.

The Lincoln Journal Star reports that Jacobson was suspended Wednesday. His suspension is set to run through March 27. During that time, he will not be involved in any team activities, practices or matches.

Police say the 59-year-old Jacobson was stopped the night of March 7 after an officer said he spotted the coach weave onto the shoulder of a road. Police say testing showed Jacobson’s blood-alcohol level registered .127 percent, more than the legal driving limit of .08 percent.

Jacobson declined to comment to the Journal Star on Thursday.

The tennis team is just beginning its conference schedule and will play four games during Jacobson’s suspension.
