Former Kentucky coach Billy Gillispie needs a kidney transplant “ASAP,” according to a report by The Dallas Morning News.
Gillispie’s health has been cause for concern for much of the last year, as the coach briefly retired from his position as the coach at Ranger College, a junior college in Texas, due to concerns about high blood pressure. However, Gillispie returned to the Rangers bench this season.
According to The Dallas Morning News report, Gillispie had missed the past three games due to health issues, though the cause of those issues had not been made public until Saturday.
Our thoughts are with Gillispie as he attempts to find a donor and get his health in order.
