Herschel Walker Releases Statement on Coach Dooley Ad

Saturday, October 29th, 2022

ATLANTA – Today, Herschel Walker released a statement on his campaign ad entitled Coach Dooley.

“I am honored and humbled that Coach Dooley filmed a commercial in September endorsing me. It has already aired in the last couple of weeks and was scheduled to be shown during the Georgia-Florida game. After the news of his passing, my first thought was to no longer run the ad because my respect for and friendship with Coach Dooley is more important than politics. I reach out to the family to express my thoughts and give my condolences and Mrs. Dooley assured me that Coach would want the commercial to continue to air. I will honor her wishes. There would be no Herschel Walker without Vince Dooley.”
