IOWA CITY – Iowa men’s head basketball coach Fran McCaffery today disclosed that his son has been diagnosed with tumor.

“Last week it was discovered that our son, Patrick, has a tumor on his thyroid,” Coach McCaffery said. “Patrick is currently undergoing tests and is scheduled to undergo surgery next Wednesday, March 19, at the University of Iowa Hospitals & Clinics. Once the mass is removed, additional tests will determine a further course of action.

“I was made aware of Patrick’s condition prior to traveling to East Lansing, Michigan, last Wednesday. Margaret and I notified our players and staff of Patrick’s health issue after a biopsy was done on Monday.

“We appreciate your concern and ask that you respect our family’s privacy as we address Patrick’s health.”
