Mike Bobo misses practice to receive medical evaluation
Colorado State head football coach Mike Bobo is currently undergoing medical evaluation after recently experiencing numbness in his feet. The fourth-year head coach missed practice Monday to receive the medical evaluation.
“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," Bobo released in a statement.
"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. 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.”
In a statement of support, Colorado State's Director of Athletics, Joe Parker released the following statement as well.
“I want to express my care and concern for Mike Bobo and his family at this time," Parker said.
"Our first priority is to focus on Mike’s health and well-being, and to support that process in every way we can. 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.”
Bobo had knee replacement surgery after CSU football concluded its spring period last March. It is unknown when the Rams head coach will be able to rejoin the program, but CSU will face Hawaii on Aug. 25 at Canvas Stadium.
