Miami’s Kevin Olsen charged with DUI

Very early last month it was reported that Kevin Olsen would be suspended for at least one game to start the 2014 season after failing a drug test.

A month and a half later, Olsen finds himself with an even bigger issue, one that puts his future with Miami very much up in the air.

According to multiple media outlets, Olsen was arrested very early Monday morning and charged with driving under the influence. Olsen was also charged with possession of a stolen or fictitious driver’s license.

There were no details as to what led to the charges. The school has yet to comment on what if any punishment Olsen may be facing.

Olsen had been involved in the Hurricanes’ quarterback competition throughout the offseason, which was eventually whittled down to Kansas transfer Jake Heaps and true freshman Brad Kaaya. The latter ultimately won the job.

A four-star member of Miami’s 2013 recruiting class, Olsen was rated as the No. 12 pro-style quarterback in the country. He’s the younger brother of former Hurricanes standout Greg Olsen.
