Coach Appears In Safety Ad Despite Driving Record
STEVE INSKEEP, host:
Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep.
The police chief in Fargo was surprised to learn the background of a man promoting traffic safety. Fargo police recruited North Dakota State football coach Craig Bohl. He appears in a traffic safety ad. Now it turns out that the coach himself was ticketed for at least 18 traffic offenses in recent years. But the ad's going to stay on the air. Coach Bohl says he did the ad because of his safety record. It reminds him to slow down.
