Pelini is out at FAU.
Intense balding coaches gone, over weed use!
CBS Sports is reporting this evening that Florida Atlantic head coach Carl Pelini and defensive coordinator Pete Rekstis have resigned under pressure after admitting to illegal drug use at a recent social event. Apparently the two coaches were escorted off campus by police, and a search for a new Owl head coach is already underway. I’m stunned.
I shot the above pic from row 24, and I think Pelini is the coach whose head is right between Sammie Coates’ knees. Rekstis is right between the “4″ and the “0″ on the field, directing traffic for the FAU defense. It’s too bad for the Owls, because I think this staff was making progress with the program.
