Unhappy Pitino on medical leave, Majerus to resign due to health

Pitino hopes to be back as soon as this weekend, and thankfully, his problems are not cancerous: http://sports.espn.go.com/ncb/news/story?id=1719240

Meanwhile, it's sadder news in Utah as Majerus has heart problems and will be resigning at the end of the year: http://sports.myway.com/news/01282004/v8201.html

He's a great coach and has a great basketball mind, so I hope he can change his lifestyle and get back.

Majerus has always battled with weight problems, but hes now up to 370. Thats insane for a 6 foot tall person.

Majerus seems like a great guy and is a great coach. My grandfather is a big Utah fan so I have some what been following him for a few years.

I hope every thing goes ok with his heart problems and who knows, maybe he will be able to come back with in a few years.

So, does anyone know what's been troubling Pitino? Urological problem== Kidney stones??

I understand that passing those is a *****. It would also be pretty short term once treatments were applied...

I just wonder why Pitino declined to tell what his medical problem was, although he has no obligation to do so.

I hope Majerus and change his eating habits and get healthier.

Could be like a urinary track infection, or something else that is embarrassing.
