Mizzou Football Coach Gary Pinkel Says Policies Won't Change In Light Of Arrests

The Mizzou football program has taken a significant hit in the last month with three players and one assistant coach arrested for DWI and sexual assault.

In light of the recent legal activity, Mizzou head coach Gary Pinkel says the Tigers won't change any of their policies, according to David Ubben of ESPN.com.

Pinkel said on Monday the guidelines and policies he's had in place for the first nine seasons of his tenure at Missouri will not change in light of the recent string of incidents.

"We've built our program with discipline as we do, and we're going to continue to do what we do. It's worked over the years, and we're not going to change," Pinkel said.

I'm sure the system in place is fine but sometimes coaches would want to change some things if not just to make the appearance that they're responding to the arrests.
