Vermeil stars in new TV ads for SS United States
PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Former NFL coach Dick Vermeil is starring in a new public service campaign for the legendary ocean liner SS United States.
Vermeil makes a personal appeal to save the ship in the ads, which will be distributed to television stations in connection with the 60th anniversary this year of the launch of the world's fastest ocean liner.
The massive ship has been moored in Philadelphia since 1996. The SS United States Conservancy is a nonprofit group that owns the historic ship and is working to redevelop it.
The conservancy hopes to air the public service announcement initially in the Philadelphia, New York and St Louis markets.
Vermeil is a former coach of the Philadelphia Eagles, St. Louis Rams and Kansas City Chiefs.
