augie.JPGTexas baseball coach Augie Garrido has 1,629 career victories -- more than anyone else in collegiate history. His Longhorns won the College World Series in 2002 and 2005.

But he's been suspended indefinitely without pay in the wake of a drunken-driving arrest early this morning.
"Police stopped the winningest coach in major college baseball near downtown Austin just before 1 a.m. Saturday after an officer became suspicious of his driving, Austin police detective James Mason said. Garrido was arrested after he failed a field sobriety test and was booked into the Travis County Jail, Mason said.

Garrido, 69, was not in the jail Saturday afternoon, jail officials said. They did not release details on his custody status, bond nor whether he had an attorney.
