Former Georgia Tech standout and NBA star Kenny Anderson has been fired from his head coaching position at David Posnack Jewish Day School in Davie, Florida following a recent DUI arrest.
Anderson, who was the second overall pick in the 1991 NBA Draft and was selected by the New Jersey Nets was pulled over on Saturday in Pembroke Pines, Florida when he failed to signal while changing lanes.
Police told the Sun Sentinel that Anderson failed a roadside sobriety test and that his blood-alcohol level registered .194, well above the 0.08 legal limit. This wasn’t Anderson’s first run in with the law in Broward County. On Dec. 11, 2011 Anderson was charged with leaving the scene of an accident on after Miramar Police said his Cadillac Escalade failed to negotiate a curve and crashed into two trees, according to the Sun Sentinel. No one was injured, police said at the time, and Anderson was charged with a misdemeanor offense.
Danny Herz, athletic director of David Posnack Jewish Day School issued a statement, “Kenny Anderson will not be returning as head basketball coach next season for the David Posnack Jewish Day School.”
