Florida State strength and conditioning coach Vic Viloria will face some serious punishment for his DUI arrest earlier this month. Viloria was reportedly operating his vehicle with a 0.125 BAC level.

As if that wasn't bad enough, the assistant coach was apparently sharing his drinking activities with some people from Showtime, who is filming a documentary called "A Season with Florida State Football."

According to the Tallahassee Democrat, Viloria will be suspended for four games to start the season. FSU President John Thrasher made it quite clear that this behavior won't be tolerated and released this statement in regards to the arrest and suspension.

"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.

"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."

That should send a pretty strong message and it's coming right from the president's mouth so that will definitely hold some weight in the FSU locker room as well as on campus.
