COLUMBIA — Missouri football coach Gary Pinkel plans to marry Missy Martinette next summer, according to their wedding website on Wednesday.
*As of Wednesday night, the website could no longer be accessed. The site originally contained details about the ceremony, to take place on June 27 at the Ritz-Carlton in Naples, Fla. Martinette's mother, Jan, who lives in Grandview, Mo., confirmed that her daughter had become engaged.
This information was posted on the site:
Pinkel, 62, asked Martinette to marry him on July 6. The engagement occurred on a Sunday night at a rooftop restaurant in New York. Pinkel "suspiciously" pulled out his iPhone and plugged it into the DJ's sound system.
Pinkel then played Jim Brickman's "Love of My Life," a song the website says is their song. After that, Pinkel played "Marry Me" by Train and proposed to Martinette with a "beautiful canary yellow diamond ring." Martinette said yes.
In 2011, she won Dancing with Missouri Stars, an annual fundraising dance competition that benefits Missouri Contemporary Ballet.
