* This story has been updated to include information about the website, which is no longer available, and confirmation by Missy Martinette's mother that her daughter had become engaged.

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.
Martinette is the publisher and owner of LO Profile magazine in Lake of the Ozarks.
In 2011, she won Dancing with Missouri Stars, an annual fundraising dance competition that benefits Missouri Contemporary Ballet.

Supervising editor is Raymond Howze.
