Mark Dantonio Hospitalized Again, Will Miss Michigan State’s Game
Michigan State head football coach Mark Dantonio, who suffered a mild heart attack after the Spartans' victory over Notre Dame on September 19th, has been hospitalized again with a blood clot, according to the Associated Press.
He will miss Michigan State's game with No. 11 Wisconsin today, the school announced just hours before kickoff.
The discovery of the blood clot came during a routine post-operative exam. Dantonio is fine according to his doctors, but they are being understandably cautious with his health.
“Coach Dantonio is doing well and his prognosis is excellent,” athletic director Mark Hollis said. “He was admitted to Sparrow Hospital for monitoring and treatment. The cardiologist told Coach D that it was in his best interest to sit out another game and to stay off his feet.”
Hollis also stated that Dantonio is still in full control of the program at MSU, even though he's been hospitalized. Hollis' comments also mentioned Dantonio "watching from the press box," even though the AP report says he'll miss the game entirely. We'll keep you updated on whether or not coach Dantonio is able to attend the game in any capacity.
UPDATE: ESPN reports that Dantonio will watch from the hospital.
