LEXINGTON, Kentucky (WKYT) – Kentucky head coach Matthew Mitchell is recovering from surgery to remove a subdural hematoma.
Matthew’s wife Jenna posted on Facebook and said that blood had been found on his brain and needed surgery. She said that about four months ago, he fell and suffered a concussion. Two weeks ago, she said that he went to the hospital with a weak but persistent headache and it was then that they discovered the blood on his brain.
Jenna said on Facebook that the operation had gone well and that he was on the mend. She thanked the staff who helped her during her operation and ended the post with that.
“The coach sometimes tells his players to practice baby” this is not brain surgery! “Well, this time was and thankful to God that he is with us and still the best father and husband we can have on our team. “
