The University of Texas Permian Basin women's head soccer coach has been placed on administrative leave after being arrested for driving while intoxicated.
Carla Tejas was arrested on Sept. 11 and with DWI after police discovered she had a blood alcohol level greater than 0.15.
“We are aware of the allegations made against Coach Tejas,” said Athletic Director Todd Dooley in a statement. “As a result, she has been placed on paid administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigation. Because this is an ongoing personnel matter, the University will not be able to comment further at this time.”
Tejas is in her first season with UTPB and has led the Falcons to a record of 4-4-1 this season. The Falcons upset nationally ranked Angelo State last Wednesday.
