Special Olympics of Kentucky is holding its state basketball tournament starting today and one team has a coach who may be familiar to UK football fans.

Former Kentucky punter Ryan Tydlacka, along with his wife Michelle Tydlacka and father-in-law Bob Osmer, are leading an Oldham County team this year. KSTV’s TJ Beisner visited Tydlacka at practice earlier this week to get an inside look at his work with the team.
