CoachK ad on CBS tourney telecast

Post by jimk72 » Thu Mar 21, 2024 11:02 pm

Who else saw the tv ad for US Army narrated by Coach K during Thursday night NCAA tourney game, CBS about 10:50 pm? Talked about the pride wearing the uniform……. Prominently showing #3 McCollum and clips from the Duke game… classy ad by a classy guy…. Can we find a clip of this for the archives somehow?

I heard about the ad and how it focused on Lehigh. Would love to see it!

Anyone remember why Lehigh was so big in Coach K's head coaching career?

56-29, Nov.-28-1975

That seems to be his first collegiate win as a head coach, while at Army, vs. Lehigh, which finished 9-15 after its one-win season.

Lehigh also had a first-year head coach that night who ended up having an amazing coaching career.

Saw the ad during the Women's Tournament. Even my wife was impressed!! It would be interesting to learn the 'story' behind the ad and whose creativity spawned the mix of using McCollum, Lehigh with the Army uniform came to be.
