TCU Offensive Line Coach Eddie Williamson Suffers Heart Attack in Game
We already knew how stressful it is coaching college football. Urban Meyer temporarily retired because of health conditions while Michigan State coach Mark Dantonio actually suffered a heart attack after his team beat Notre Dame. The latest coach we can add to the list of concern is TCU offensive line coach Eddie Williamson.
During his halftime interview on Versus, Coach Gary Patterson announced that his offensive line coach suffered a heart attack during the first quarter. Luckily Williamson is said to be in stable condition at a nearby hospital.
TCU was down 14-0 early so the deficit no doubt contributed to the rising stress and concern for Williamson, as well as all the coaches on the Horned Frogs’ staff. TCU got it together after the early deficit, scoring touchdowns on five of their final six drives prior to the half. With a 35-14 halftime lead the upset concerns look like an afterthought, but the condition of Williamson is not. We’ll continue to provide updates as soon as we get more information.
