Jim McElwain receives positive health update following recent seizure
Jim McElwain, the Central Michigan coach who previously was the head coach at Florida, is recovering from a seizure he suffered last week that caused him to miss Mid-American Conference Media Day in Cleveland.
McElwain, who was hospitalized following the incident, received a positive update about his health. Tony Paul of the Detroit News offered the latest update, and reported that he should be available for the start of training camp this week.
Paul previously reported that this is the second health scare in as many years for McElwain, who had appendicitis late last summer and had to miss the Chippewas’ season opener at Missouri.
CMU football coach Jim McElwain should be good to go for the start of training camp this week, per a school spokesman, after he was in the hospital for a couple days last week after suffering a seizure.
