University of Central Florida head coach George O’Leary told the Orlando Sentinel this afternoon that he was the one who granted access to a UCF locker room for a magazine photo shoot featuring a Playboy Playmate.
After video of the photo shoot appeared on the Internet Saturday, a school spokesman said that university officials would be reminding employees about the university’s standards.
The photo shoot with Miss July 2010, Shanna Marie McLaughlin, is featured on the website of Axis magazine, an Orlando entertainment publication. McLaughlin, a UCF alumna, is the magazine’s August 2010 cover model.
[…] O’Leary said he was shown a copy of the magazine cover.
“Eh, it’s not what I expected, but I don’t think there’s anything outlandish on the thing. I never saw the video.”
In a statement e-mailed to the Sentinel on Saturday, Joe Hornstein, associate director of athletics, apologized to UCF fans.
