The University of Cincinnati decided not to follow Ohio State's one-and-done path with Jim O'Brien. Instead, the school has suspended basketball head coach Bob Huggins indefinitely.

Athletic Director Bob Goin wouldn't specify the time period for the suspension, but left open the possibility of Huggins' return by next season. The coach will still be paid, and will meet with school officials as to what to do next to get back on the court as soon as possible.

Huggins was arrested on Tuesday night in a Cincinnati suburb for drunk driving. Police reports said Huggins had slurred speech, smelled of alcohol and couldn't complete a breathalyzer test. He also had trouble keeping his lane, and at one point, his car stood still at a green light for 10 seconds. Police also found vomit on the driver-side door.

Huggins has coached the Bearcats for the last 15 seasons, leading them to almost 375 wins.
