GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — The University of Florida says a 2014 sports calendar featuring former Gator and New England Patriots football star Aaron Hernandez was approved before he was charged with killing three men.
School spokesman Daniel Apple said Tuesday that officials approved the calendar last spring. Hernandez was arrested on June 26, 2013, in the slaying of Odin Lloyd.
Apple says the calendar is just one of thousands of Gators-related merchandise the school reviews.
Hernandez was later indicted on two counts of first-degree murder in the drive-by shooting of two other men, Daniel de Abreu and Safiro Furtado.
Hernandez has pleaded not guilty and is in jail.
Apple says the school advised the calendar’s maker that Florida no longer approves of the product, but that those already printed will not be recalled.
