Former Spiders coach sentenced to jail

HENRICO, VA (WWBT) - Former University of Richmond football coach, Latrell Scott, will serve time in jail for an August DUI charge.

Thursday, a Henrico County court sentenced Scott to a mandatory ten days in jail. The jail time was mandatory because this is Scott's second offense in the past ten years.

Scott's time will be served on weekends, beginning Friday night.

Back in August, police pulled Scott over just days before the Spiders were supposed to play their first game of the season. Police say Scott refused a breathalyzer test. He then resigned as U of R coach.
