ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Lobo Football Head Coach Bob Davie has issued a statement following his hospitalization Saturday night after the Lobos’ victory against Sam Houston State.

The following statement was posted to the University of New Mexico Football’s Twitter account on Sunday afternoon.

My family and I want to thank the UNM training room staff, first responders and UNMH – it is impossible to fully express our gratitude for your swift and professional efforts during a critical time. To the coaching staff and their families – thank you for your support and for taking care of my family and our team during this time.

I anticipate a full recovery thanks to the excellent care received. My wife Joanne is with me and we hugely appreciate everyone who has reached out with well wishes.

official Statement from Coach Bob Davie

In a statement, Athletic Director Eddie Nunez said Davie was immediately transported by ambulance to a hospital following “a serious medical incident”. He also asked that people keep the Davie family in their prayers.

The exact reason he was taken to the hospital is still unclear.

Saturday’s temperatures reached a high of 96 degrees which might have played a role in the incident. But, it’s still unclear whether that was a factor in the incident.

The following is a statement released by Davie’s family late Saturday: “On behalf of the Davie family, we would like to thank everyone for their thoughts and prayers. Coach Davie is doing well and recovering, he is surrounded by family and your continued thoughts, prayers and privacy are greatly appreciated during this time.”
