PROVO -- While attending a family reunion in Las Vegas over the weekend BYU head basketball coach Dave Rose experienced some internal bleeding. After a series of tests, coach Rose underwent surgery to have his spleen removed.
It is expected that the recuperation process may take several weeks. During this time, the coaching staff will run the day-to-day basketball operations, including the summer basketball camps.
"Our thoughts and prayers are with the Rose family at this time," said Tom Holmoe, BYU Director of Athletics. "We would ask that his privacy be respected as he recuperates from surgery."
Coach Rose and his family wish to express their appreciation to the doctors and nurses in Las Vegas who have provided excellent medical care.
