Former University of Kentucky head football coach Hal Mumme was arrested Friday at a Hyatt hotel in downtown Lexington, Kentucky.
According to WKYT, police said Mumme was asked to leave the hotel but refused to do so. That is when police said he would resist arrest. Mumme has been charged with criminal trespassing and resisting arrest, and he is set to appear in court on Friday.
Mumme’s 45 years as a coach has taken him to the high school, college, and professional levels of football. During Mumme’s tenure at Kentucky, he coached quarterback Tim Couch, who went on to be the No. 1 overall pick in the 1999 NFL draft to the Cleveland Browns.
The 70-year-old Mumme spent four seasons as Kentucky’s head coach from 1997 to 2000, going 20-26 with two bowl appearances.
He resigned following the 2000 season amid allegations of NCAA recruiting violations. Kentucky received a postseason ban in 2002 as a result.
Last year, Mumme was head coach of The Spring League’s Linemen team, leading them to a 5-1 record and a championship.
