Texas Tech men's basketball coach Billy Gillispie is seeking treatment for stress and high blood pressure at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn. This comes after an ambulance was sent to Gillispie's home on Monday following a 911 call, according to a report from the Associated Press.
A source told ESPN.com that while it's still unknown when Gillispie will return to Texas Tech, he does intend to coach this season.
"Coach Gillispie is both a great coach and a great man who truly cares about helping young men achieve their dreams and true potential," the source said. "Hopefully, he'll find the answers to his medical issues quickly and be able to return to the Red Raiders and lead their basketball program back into national prominence."
Gillispie was discharged from a Lubbock hospital last week after being hospitalized for nearly a week. Current Texas Tech players met with school officials late last month, expressing concern over the length of practices and other conduct.
