PROVO, Utah (AP) -- BYU basketball coach Dave Rose says he's still cancer-free and ready to go as the season approaches.
Rose had an MRI last week to confirm that there are no signs of the cancerous tumor he had removed from his pancreas and spleen in June. He said Monday that the exam came back normal.
Rose has been back at work full-time since Aug. 1 and has another couple of weeks before practice begins Oct. 16.
He's due for another checkup in six months, which will be late March. Rose says he hopes to have a conflict: the NCAA tournament.
