Cloud said the coach's paid suspension is pending the results of a school district investigation. The AD expects the investigation to take about a week. A recommendation will then be made to Tulsa Public School Superintendent Dr. Keith Ballard.

Bowling's blood alcohol content was .203, more than twice the legal limit, according to the arresting officer.

Bowling was a Parade All-American quarterback at Jenks and was a member of the Oklahoma State University football team. He played in the Arena Football League from 2003-2008.
