Former PC Coach Tim Welsh Expresses Remorse after Arrest

MELVILLE, N.Y. (AP) — Suspended Hofstra basketball coach Tim Welsh is expressing remorse after police charged him with driving while intoxicated.

Welsh told Newsday on Saturday that he is sorry for the incident. He expressed his “deepest regrets.”

He added that he would have further comments after he meets with officials from the university this week.

Welsh was suspended without pay on Friday while the school in Hempstead investigates the allegations.

Hofstra hired Welsh in March. He previously coached at Providence and Iona. He spent the past two seasons as a commentator for ESPNU, which is devoted to college sports.

Nassau County police say Welsh was taken into custody and charged with DWI early Friday morning. He has pleaded not guilty to the charges.
