LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A former football coach and player just might be the luckiest man in Louisville.
A year and a half ago, thieves robbed Bob Bronger's home, stealing his wife's jewelry and his two football rings. Monday, he got his coach's Hall of Fame ring back. Alicia Zanetti found it in the lost and found at a local post office Friday. "It was in a package that evidently wasn't packaged properly and it was lost in the mail and we found it Friday," said Zanetti.
She Googled the name that is engraved on the ring, and returned it to Bronger at Fern Creek High School. "I didn't think I'd ever see this ring again, the Marshall ring they had to have that re-made, because it had been melted down by one of our local gold dealers. But this ring, evidently it's the original, so this is pretty cool," said Bronger.
Last summer, the county attorney's office worked with Marshall University to make him an exact replica of his Marshall University football ring.
Bronger says he's going to wear both rings more often now that he has them back.
