BOZEMAN, Mont. — On Saturday, Montana State University football offensive coordinator Taylor Housewright was cited for aggravated DUI in Gallatin County.
According to court documents, Housewright was pulled over at 12:28 a.m. and was offered a blood alcohol test, which he refused.
The documents allege Housewright crashed a school-issued courtesy car and left the scene.
Anderson Towing called the crash in.
The citations say a friend of Housewright’s drove the crashed vehicle, while Housewright drove in a different vehicle, in which he was pulled over.
Housewright was also cited with failure to give notice of an accident and leaving the scene of an accident resulting in property damage over $1,000.
A court date is set for June 26 at 8 a.m. in Gallatin County Justice Court.
In a separate incident, MSU defensive coordinator Willie Mack Garza was cited for a DUI on Nov. 19, 2022.
Garza was suspended for one game and missed the team’s matchup against Weber State.
MSU released this statement this afternoon:
Coach Housewright promptly informed the university that he had been charged with a DUI and a courtesy car he was driving damaged on Friday.
The university will follow its regular procedures for dealing with personnel matters and await the due-process of the court system.
Due to employee privacy laws, the university does not comment on personnel matters.
