Officials at the University of Texas say they are considering Vince Young's position with the school after his arrest on suspicion of drunken driving.

Travis County jail records show that the 32-year-old former Texas Longhorns quarterback star was booked shortly after midnight Monday on a misdemeanour drunken-driving charge. His bond was set at $2,000.

Young has worked with the university promoting diversity and community engagement. In a statement Monday, a university spokesman says officials were working to "determine any appropriate action."

Susswein said the school had no immediate comment.
