Yesterday, news came out that Vince Young was arrested for a DUI. Now, he’s broken his silence and also apologized to the University of Texas, his boss.

He said he’s hoping that young people do not make the same mistake that he’s made. He was arrested for driving drunk early Monday morning in Austin, Texas.

The arresting officers said that he was slurring his words and couldn’t stand up straight.

Young, who is an analyst for the Longhorn Network and works within the University of Texas’ Division of Diversity and Community Engagement.

Without officially admitting to any guilt, he’s admitted that he messed up. ESPN — who owns the Longhorn Network — and Texas has not punished him yet — if they will at all.

“Regardless of the outcome of the pending investigation, I would like my friends, family and fans to know that I do not condone drinking and driving in any way whatsoever,” Young said. “I am very disappointed in myself and am so sorry for any conduct that has made this legal process necessary.

“I specifically want to apologize to the young men and women who look up to me as a role model and to my employers at the University of Texas and the Longhorn Network. Please let this be a lesson to you all and a moment for you to learn from.”

Young, who has been a troubled athlete, last played in the NFL with the Philadelphia Eagles in 2011. He was Michael Vick‘s back-up during that season.

He was a training camp quarterback with the Cleveland Browns, Green Bay Packers and Buffalo Bills; however, wasn’t able to make the final cuts. During his time with the Tennessee Titans, he disappeared after being distraught from a two interception game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

“I understand the seriousness of the situation I am in and take full responsibility for not having met my own standards of personal conduct,” he added.
