Davie rushed to hospital following Lobos’ win

University of New Mexico football coach Bob Davie was taken to an area hospital Saturday evening with what was believed to be chest pain following the Lobos’ 39-31 victory over Sam Houston State at Dreamstyle Arena.

There was no immediate word on Davie’s condition.

Postgame interviews were canceled as a result.

UNM athletic director Eddie Nunez issued the following statement:

“Immediately following tonight‘s football game between the University of New Mexico and Sam Houston State University, Lobo head coach Bob Davie was taken to the hospital as a result of what appeared to be a serious medical condition.

“The university will release more information as it becomes available.

“We ask that you keep the Davie family in your prayers.”

Davie could be seen at several points during the game on the UNM sideline with his hands on his midsection and chest. At one point, Davie knelt down during the action.

Later Saturday, UNM released a statement from the Davie family: ” … We would like to thank everyone for their thoughts and prayers. Coach Davie is doing well and recovering, he is surrounded by family and your continued thoughts, prayers, and privacy are greatly appreciated during this time.”

Davie, 64, has just begun his eighth season as UNM’s head coach. He came to Albuquerque after a 10-year career as an ESPN football analyst and, before that, five years (1997-2001) as the head coach at Notre Dame.

With Saturday‘s victory, Davie has a 34-54 record at UNM and a 69-79 record as a head coach.

The Pittsburgh-area native played college football at Youngstown (Ohio) State. He worked as an assistant coach at Pittsburgh, Arizona, Tulane, Texas A&M and Notre Dame.
