Schembechler collapses in studio, sent to hospital


Associated Press


DETROIT -- Former Michigan football coach Bo Schembechler collapsed Friday during the taping of a television show and was taken by ambulance to a hospital.


The 77-year-old coaching great became ill at WXYZ-TV in Southfield the day before the Ohio State-Michigan showdown, the station said. Schembechler also was hospitalized Oct. 20 after falling ill at the same studio.


Southfield police spokesman John Harris could not provide specific medical information, but said: "I don't think it was good."


Police were sent to the station about 9:25 a.m. with the city's fire department, and they escorted an ambulance to Providence Hospital, Harris said.


Messages were left with the university, Schembechler's office and the hospital.


Schembechler met with the media this week to discuss Saturday's game between the No. 1 Buckeyes and No. 2 Wolverines. He also talked about the device that was implanted to regulate his heartbeat after he was hospitalized last month. He said the device covered about half his chest, and doctors still were adjusting it.


Schembechler said he did not plan to attend the game in Columbus, Ohio, and he doesn't go to road games anymore.


Schembechler had a heart attack on the eve of his first Rose Bowl in 1970 and another one in 1987. He has had two quadruple heart bypass operations.


The seven-time Big Ten coach of the year had a 194-48-5 record at Michigan from 1969-89. His record in 26 years of coaching was 234-64-8.
