Tata entered the plea Wednesday for an incident Jan. 24 that resulted in Vanderbilt suspending the new defensive line coach.
The agreement includes Tata losing his license for a year and serving 48 hours in jail with the rest of the 11-month, 29-day sentence suspended.
His attorney Roger May told The Tennessean that Tata was very embarrassed and wanted to apologize to Vanderbilt.
Police said Tata, 37, recorded a 0.18 percent blood alcohol content on a Breathalyzer test, above the state limit of 0.08 when police found him a few blocks away from a vehicle that had crashed into two parked vehicles.
