When I first heard about Coach K’s new iPhone app — via our own Twitter page no less — I fully expected the shortened url accompanying the tweet to take me to some parody site or article. One perhaps hosted/written by a Heels fan, or actually anyone unaffiliated with Duke University for that matter. It didn’t.
Instead I was directed to Coach K’s official website, and an entry announcing the March 23rd release of Coach K’s first foray into the iPhone’s app store. Wow.
Needless to say, I still thought this was some sort of joke. April Fools’ come early? Had to be. But then I wanted to be certain.
Next step, whip out the trusty iPhone, tap into the app store, and do a quick search for “Coach K.” Lo and behold, there she was.
Simple icon, glossy blue. “Coach K” written in white. Calm, cool, somewhat collected. Somewhat like Coach K.
Was I satisfied? Absolutely not. Did I drop the $2.99 to download the app just to make sure? I did. Will I be writing this expenditure off as a necessary business expense come April 2011? Most likely.
