BREAKING: UK football coach Rich Brooks, two others safe after boat capsizes

From WHAS-TV in Louisville:

"Kentucky football coach Rich Brooks was one of three people in a boat that capsized Monday morning. It happened on the McKenzie River near Eugene, Oregon where the 66-year-old Brooks is on vacation. Also on the boat, were Brooks' 38-year-old son Brady and one other man.

"All three people managed to make it to shore before Lane County Water Rescue personnel arrived. Brooks coached the University of Oregon from 1995-1996 and took the Ducks to the Rose Bowl.

"WHAS-11 News talked with UK Media Relations Director Tony Neely this afternoon. Neely talked with Brooks and says the coach is doing just fine and will probably be back on the river fishing tomorrow. Brooks has coached the Kentucky Wildcats since 2003, and is coming off two consecutive bowl victories."
