Former Washington football coach Don James remained hospitalized Thursday after undergoing two surgical procedures this week to treat gastrointestinal issues.
James, 80, was resting comfortably at Virginia Mason Medical Center, according to a family statement released through UW on Thursday afternoon. He was admitted on Monday.
Doctors believed the surgeries were successful, according to the release. The family issued the statement to stem speculation about James’ health.
James was 153-57-2 as the Huskies’ coach from 1975 to 1992, leading UW to a share of the 1991 national championship. James has remained close to the program, and gave his annual preseason address to the team during a practice inside Husky Stadium two weeks ago.
