When Florida Atlantic made the decision this week to remove Carl Pelini has head coach, there was plenty of discussion about alleged marijuana use. Word quickly spread that thee was more to the story besides marijuana use, and apparently there may be some truth to that rumor.
According to a report by SB Nation published Friday, Pelini and defensive coordinator Pete Rekstis agreed to resign from his job after being tied to alleged marijuana and cocaine use during their tenures at Florida Atlantic. According to documents obtained by SB Nation through a Freedom of Information Act request, two witnesses (possibly an assistant coach) accused Pelini of using the drugs.
