Former Mountaineer and Current Head Coach Charged With DUI

Morgantown, West Virginia – Former West Virginia Mountaineers point guard and current Radford head coach Darris Nichols was arrested Sunday for driving under the influence.

Nichols, 36, was arrested February 19, 2023 for DUI in Radford, and released the next day on a $3500 unsecured bond.

Nichols averaged 10.7 points and 3.2 assists per game as as a senior for the Mountaineers during the 2007-2008 season when the team made it to the 2008 Sweet Sixteen.

It’s unclear at this time what the arrest will have on his future at Radford. Radford is 17-12 overall this season. The team is tied for second place in the Big South Conference with an 11-5 league mark.
