New Mexico’s Davie expects full recovery ‘medical incident’

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — New Mexico coach Bob Davie says he expects to fully recover after being rushed to an Albuquerque hospital moments after his team’s season-opening victory over Sam Houston State on Saturday night.

School officials say the 64-year-old coach had “a serious medical incident” following the game but was doing well at the hospital by nightfall and surrounded by his family.

In a statement Sunday, Davie thanked the team’s training room staff, first responders and University of New Mexico Hospital staff for their “swift and professional efforts during a critical time.”

Davie says he “anticipates a full recovery thanks to the excellent care” he received.

New Mexico’s next game is at Notre Dame on Sept. 14. Davie is a former Notre Dame coach who is in his eighth season leading New Mexico.
