Denny Crum is recovering in the hospital after suffering a stroke, this according to a statement released Tuesday night by his foundation.

“Hall of Fame basketball coach Denny Crum suffered a stroke this past week and is now recovering in a local hospital,” the statement read. “Coach Crum and his family appreciate the thoughts, prayers and also their privacy while he is recovering. No further statements will be made at this time.”

The Hall of Fame coach also suffered a stroke in August of 2017, but made a full recovery and has remained a fixture at Louisville basketball home games. Here’s hoping the same thing happens here.

It goes without saying that all of our thoughts, prayers, well-wishes and everything else go out to coach Crum. Louisville’s coach forever.
