A photo of Aaron Hernandez, the former Florida TE who has been charged with killing three men, is in a 2014 University of Florida sports calendar.
A photo of him with the ball is featured for the month of July.
Officials approved the calendar in the spring of 2013, shortly before Hernandez was arrested on June 26, 2013, in the slaying of Odin Lloyd, Florida spokesman Daniel Apple told The Associated Press.
“There are thousands of Gators products for approval in the pipeline at any given moment,” he told the AP.
He added that the school just became aware of the calendar, which was for sale at Target.com, on Monday. The calendars will not be recalled.
Hernandez, who played for Florida from 2007-09 before playing for the New England Patriots from 2010-12, has been charged with killing Odin Lloyd, Daniel de Abreu and Safiro Furtado.
He has pleaded not guilty to all charges and is in jail.
