LAWRENCEBURG, Ky. (AP) - A judge has set a Feb. 10 trial date in the drunken-driving case against former Kentucky basketball coach Billy Gillispie.

Gillispie wasn't in Anderson County District Court for Monday's hearing. Attorney William Patrick said he requested a delay in the proceedings because Gillispie hadn't yet decided whether to agree to a plea bargain.

County Attorney Bobbi Jo Lewis has acknowledged offering Gillispie a plea deal but says she will not accept a plea to a lesser charge than DUI.

Gillispie was arrested Aug. 27 and charged with DUI after refusing sobriety tests during a traffic stop in which officers said they smelled alcohol on his breath.

Gillispie was fired this year after a rocky two-year tenure in which the Wildcats went 40-27.
