Brigham Young men’s basketball coach Dave Rose had emergency surgery to remove his spleen after experiencing internal bleeding last weekend.
The school said Rose could take several weeks to recover and his assistants will assume his duties, including running summer basketball camps.
Athletic director Tom Holmoe announced Rose’s surgery in a news release Tuesday.
Rose was in Las Vegas for a family reunion when he became ill last weekend.
BYU has a 97-34 record in four seasons under Rose.
