NO NEED TO BE COY, ROY: KS COACH WILLIAMS CRIES FOUL ON AD
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).
