FSU strength coach Vic Viloria suspended following DUI arrest
Florida state strength and conditioning coach Vic Viloria has been suspended for one month without pay after his arrest for DUI and property damage.
“I have suspended Coach Viloria for more than a third of the football season to send a strong message about the very serious nature of his offense,” FSU president John Thrasher said. “We have an outstanding athletics program, and fans must know it operates with class and reflects the university’s values. We are continuing to work with Showtime on their fall series showcasing our talented team, and they have been responsive to our concerns.”
Viloria was arrested on Saturday with a BAC of 0.125. He later admitted to drinking in his office after the Showtime film crew, which has been filming A Season With Florida State Football, brought him whiskey.
“We are continuing to work with Showtime on their fall series showcasing our talented team, and they have been responsive to our concerns,” Thrasher said.
Viloria will miss the first five games of the season and lose over $30,000 of his salary. He can return on Oct. 2 ahead of FSU’s game against Miami.
