Rich Brooks Involved In Boating Accident

Quite a scare for University of Kentucky Head Coach Rich Brooks while on a fishing trip today in Oregon.

Brooks' fishing boat capsized in the McKenzie River near Eugene this morning. Brooks, his son Brady and a family friend Walter Barger were able to swim to a gravel bar and hold on until rescuers got to them.

The boat reportedly got caught up in a strong current and was pushed into a log channel which caused it tip over. All three are okay. None of them were wearing life jackets.
