Report: Carl Pelini resigned from FAU due to allegations of cocaine and marijuana use
Former Florida Atlantic head coach Carl Pelini stepped down earlier this week after allegations he used both marijuana and cocaine, reports SBNation.com‘s Spencer Hall.
Two affidavits claim Pelini and defensive coordinator Pete Rekstis were seen as recently as Oct. 19 using marijuana in Key West, Fla., and one witness claims to have seen Pelini using both cocaine and marijuana within the last 12 months. One of the affidavits was signed by a Matt Edwards, which is also the name of the team’s defensive line coach and special teams coordinator.
Pelini and DC Rekstis both resigned Wednesday after these allegations were brought to the attention of FAU athletic director Pat Chun.
