ANN ARBOR, Mich. (WXYZ) - Aaron Siepierski was planning on welcoming hundreds of people to an estate sale featuring belongings of legendary U of M football coach Bo Schembechler, but he was forced to turn them away.
Siepierski's company organized the sale for Matt Schembechler, the son of the famed football coach.
Matt says because of financial reasons he's selling just about everything he owns, including some of his father's things. Among the items for sale are autographed pictures and Schembechler's tackle box.
However, the estate sale was canceled Thursday. The Ann Arbor home where it was supposed to be held is part of a neighborhood association. It's president told 7 Action News off camera that it has rules against having large events because of concerns over security and property damage.
The association even hired security to make sure there would be no estate sale held in that neighborhood.
"We have been doing things like this for years. We just trust each other to respect one another," says Matt Schembechler.
"I've turned away about 150 people. It's really sad," say Siepierski.
The estate sale was set to be a four day event, but now it's on hold and is supposed to be rescheduled at a new location.
"I think we'll just find a way," says Matt Schembechler.
