A Florida Atlantic assistant coach told the school he personally witnessed former Owls head coach Carl Pelini using marijuana last month, and that he also witnessed him using cocaine in the past year.

Matt Edwards' affidavit was released to The Associated Press by the university on Friday. Edwards is listed as a defensive line and special teams coach for the Owls. Edwards and Allison Stewart both said they saw Pelini smoking marijuana in Key West, Fla. on Oct. 19.

Edwards also says that he observed former defensive coordinator Pete Rekstis using marijuana and cocaine in the past year.

Pelini and Rekstis both resigned Wednesday, two days after the school says two people came forward with information about the coaches using illegal drugs.
