A ring $R$ is called right McCoy, if for any zero-divisor
$f (x)$ in the polynomial ring $R[x]$, there exists a nonzero element $c\in R$ with $f(x)c = 0$.
In this note, we show that von Neumann regular McCoy rings are abelian. This gives an
answer to the question posed in ``A. R. Nasr-Isfahani, On semiprime right Goldie McCoy rings, Comm. Algebra.
