The University of Richmond has announced that head football coach Latrell Scott has resigned his position at the University of Richmond.  Offensive coordinator Wayne Lineburg has been named the interim head coach.

According to multiple media reports, Scott was charged with driving while intoxicated in Henrico County late Monday,

“Although the timing and circumstances are unfortunate, I am confident that Coach Lineburg, his staff, and the football student-athletes will have a successful 2011 season,” said UR athletics director Jim Miller.

Lineburg, 37, is entering his second year back on the Richmond staff after three seasons on the offensive staff at the University of Virginia.
