Police back NDSU football coach Craig Bohl as traffic safety pitch man, despite long speeding record


FARGO, N.D. - It took a while, but Craig Bohl says he gets it now.

The North Dakota State University football coach is the voice of the 30-second radio ad Fargo police began airing Monday as part of a new traffic-safety campaign dubbed, "Are you getting it now?"

Yet Bohl has been ticketed for at least 18 traffic offenses in the region since 2003, the year he was hired, including 10 speeding tickets in the past three years.
