New Texas A&M basketball coach Billy Kennedy revealed on Thursday that he has an early stage of Parkinson’s disease, and he hopes to return to the court in the fall.
“At this time, I am heeding the advice of my doctors and addressing the disease and its symptoms. We have begun a long-term treatment plan and recovery. My doctors are encouraged and are telling me I will be able to come back soon,” he said.
When Texas A&M announced last week it would be leaving the Big 12, it turned from an amicable split into a bad divorce in a short time. Even when it seems like the school and the conference had reached a compromise, one side finds a way to submarine the deal.
Last summer Big 12 commissioner Dan Beebe looked like a savior when Nebraska and Colorado bolted for the Big 10 and Pac 10 respectively. Faced with the prospect of his conference dissolving, Beebe secured a billion dollar, multi year television deal for the Big 12. Crisis averted, right?
Texas Tech’s decision to hire Billy Gillispie as head men’s basketball coach was a great move. For the last few years, the Red Raiders’ program has been heading in the wrong direction and Gillispie is the kind of coach that can turn Lubbock back into a basketball town.
