ORLANDO, Fla., Sept. 3 (UPI) -- Members of the media were shocked to be connected to a phone sex line while trying to hear a teleconference by a Florida football coach, officials say.

University of Central Florida officials said they accidentally gave members of the media the number of a phone sex line instead of the number for a teleconference by university football coach, George O'Leary, The Orlando (Fla.) Sentinel said.


"Hi, sexy, you've reached the one-on-one fantasy line," a woman on the incorrect phone line was quoted as saying.

Central Florida Director of Athletic Communications Leigh Torbin said Monday's communications snafu was due to one misplaced digit on the conference's phone number, the Sentinel reported.

"Today's scheduled call was not able to occur due to my own technical mistakes for which I deeply apologize," Torbin said while announcing the teleconference had been moved to Wednesday.
