ESTERO, Fla.- Florida Gulf Coast University volleyball coach Dave Nichols has been suspended for three games after he was arrested early Sunday morning.  The Lee County Sheriff's Office says Nichols was taken to jail for driving under the influence.
WINK News spoke with FGCU Athletic Director Ken Kavanagh Tuesday night. He says this is the first time he's dealt with an issue like this with a coach. So, he applied the same punishment that he would to a player. That includes a minimum suspension of 10% of the season. In this case, that equals out to three games.
