In his first public comments since GM Steve Keim was cited for DUI on July 4th, Arizona Cardinals president Michael Bidwill tells 'The Mike Broomhead Show' 6a-10a on NewsTalk 550 KFYI this morning Keim made an "enormous mistake," and "there are going to be consequences."
"First of all, I'm extremely disappointed and, uh, you know, it’s inexcusable and, you know, he did bring it to our attention right away that night and has been extremely remorseful and contrite and has taken steps to, um, you know, make things right but you know the reality is there is a process in place that the league has and, uh, there are going to be consequences here and I don’t want to comment too much more but I can tell you that I had a pretty strong conversation with Steve and he wasn’t surprised by it because he knows what the standards are and he made an enormous mistake and, you know, he’s going through that process right now and I’ll just leave it at that."
Keim was cited for driving under the influence on July 4th in Chandler, Arizona. The GM and the Cardinals both acknowledged the incident in statements released Saturday morning.
"I truly regret my incredibly poor judgment and inexcusable actions," Keim said in his statement, which was released by the team. "Everyone associated with the NFL and its teams is held to a high standard of behavior and I obviously failed to meet that. I sincerely apologize to our organization and its fans as well as to my family. I accept full responsibility for my actions and hold myself completely accountable. Moving forward, I will take the steps to ensure that I never put myself or the Cardinals in this type of situation again."
Bidwill also discussed his support of Supreme Court Justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh. Listen to the entire interview:
