Colorado State’s Mike Bobo Is Placed On Medical Leave
The Rams head coach has a medical issue.
Wishing the best for coach Bobo
Colorado State could be without its head coach for a little while. Following Saturday’s scrimmage, head coach Mike Bobo was taken to the hospital due to numbness in his feet.
The 44-year-old coach missed Monday’s practice while he is awaiting test results. It should be noted, but maybe not related, Bobo had knee surgery back in April.
“I recently began to experience numbness in my feet. After our second scrimmage on Saturday night, it was determined by doctors that I should be admitted to the hospital to undergo further testing. I feel very encouraged by the test results to this point and hope to have some answers soon. I also feel very encouraged about our 2018 CSU Football team,” Bobo said in a news release.
“We have excellent coaches and excellent leadership in this program, and I have full confidence that they will continue to have tremendous preparation on and off the practice field for as long as I must be away. My family and I appreciate all of the great care and support we are receiving.”
It is unknown when Bobo will return to the sidelines and no interim coach has been named. There is also no offensive coordinator, per se, since Bobo calls the plays. The next highest coach on the pecking order is quarterbacks coach Ronnie Letson also carries the title of assistant head coach.
“I want to express my care and concern for Mike Bobo and his family at this time. Our first priority is to focus on Mike’s health and well-being, and to support that process in every way we can,” Colorado State athletic director Joe Parker said in a release. “I share Mike’s confidence that we have tremendous leadership in our football program and that the coaching staff will continue to successfully guide the team through practices and meetings while he is away.”
Colorado State opens up the season at home against Hawaii on Aug. 25.
