NO NEED TO BE COY, ROY: KS COACH WILLIAMS CRIES FOUL ON AD
Published March 12, 1999
Univ. of KS men's basketball coach Roy Williams was featured in an ad for the "Sports Page Brewery" earlier this week, though the university called the move "a mistake," according to Jeffrey Flanagan of the K.C. STAR. SID Dean Buchan said that Williams is friends with the bar's owner, who thought it was OK to use a picture in the ad, but "Roy didn't want his picture used." Buchan said that the bar was "happy to stop the ad out of respect" for Williams. NCAA Dir of PR Wally Renfro said the appearance of coaches in ads promoting bars is not an NCAA violation (K.C. STAR, 3/12).
