Athletic Director Rick Villarreal released a statement on the health of Dan McCarney:
"Yesterday afternoon after returning from Miami I spoke with Margy McCarney who said that her husband, Dan, had experienced some medical difficulties significant enough that he was taken to the hospital. The details that we know at this time are that he was admitted and is currently undergoing a battery of tests and will continue to be under observation. The exact cause and nature of the symptoms of his illness are not immediately known by us at this time. The family has asked until a complete diagnosis and a course of treatment is established that their privacy be respected. We can't comment any further at this time and will release information as it becomes available and approved by the family."
