The law firm that represented Pinkel in court announced Monday morning that the suspended coach will offer his first public comments since his Nov. 16 arrest.
Pinkel did not coach during Missouri's win over Texas Tech as part of a one week unpaid suspension. He is expected to return to work on Thanksgiving as the Tigers prepare to face Kansas on Saturday in their final regular season game.
Pinkel pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of drunken driving two days after his arrest. He received a 30-day suspended sentence along with two years probation.
