New Billboard: Fire Jeff Bzdelik, Wake AD
Fed up Wake Forest basketball fans have made it abundantly clear that they want head basketball coach Jeff Bzdelik and his 33–59 record in three seasons fired. They’ve launched a website, taken out prominent ads in both the school and local newspapers and created t-shirts.
Alas, none of it has convinced AD Ron Wellman to axe Bzdelik. In response, the anti-Bzdelik camp’s latest publicity effort has been to erect a billboard along U.S. Route 52 in Winston Salem, NC, calling for the jobs of both Bzdelik (#BuzzOut) and Wellman (#FireWellman).
This was not some cheap publicity stunt, either — literally speaking. The billboard required the “Fire Bzdelik” group to raise $4,500. By putting their money where their mouth is, they showed they’re not backing down until Bzdelik and Wellman are gone.
