University of Connecticut Women’s Basketball head coach Geno Auriemma was taken to the hospital Saturday morning, according to UConn officials.
University officials confirm that Auriemma decided to deplane a flight at Bradley International Airport because he was not feeling well. Auriemma was transported to the hospital for observation where he is resting. The coach has been ill for several days, according to the university.
No other details about his illness have been released.
Earlier this month Auriemma missed a parade celebrating his team’s fourth consecutive national title due to illness.
