Gilispie Gear On Clearance; Ads Pulled Off Air

The coaching change at UK not only has the school searching for a replacement, but many companies are pulling ads and others trying to sell merchandise featuring the former coach.

Former UK Coach Billy Gilispie had been featured all over the T.V., radio, Internet, and commercials. But now the man y businesses who hired Gilispie to represent them, are scrambling to get his stuff of the shelves and pulled off the air.

For example, at CatFanAttic a t-shirt bearing Gilispie's name would have set you back $14.95, but is now priced $5.00.

Retailers will most likely lose revenue from the down sales now that items are being sold at clearance.
