Kansas’ leading rusher the past two seasons could find himself facing some type of disciplinary action from his new head coach following an incident Sunday.
According to the Lawrence Journal World, running back James Sims was arrested early Sunday morning and charged with operating a vehicle under the influence. No additional details, including what led to the initial traffic stop by university police, have been made available.
KU’s associate athletic director, Jim Marchiony, told the paper that any punishment for Sims will be handled internally by head coach Charlie Weis.
Sims started all 12 games in 2011, leading the Jayhawks in rushing with 727 yards and nine touchdowns. He also led the team in the same categories (742, nine) as a true freshman in 2010.
