Bobcats coach Clifford needs heart procedure
November 09, 2013, 05:00 AM The Associated Press

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Charlotte Bobcats head coach Steve Clifford will need a procedure to have two stents placed in his heart and will not coach Friday night’s game against the New York Knicks.

Bobcats president of basketball operations Rod Higgins said Friday in release that Clifford checked himself into the hospital Thursday night because he was suffering from chest pains. Higgins said Clifford is “resting comfortably” in the hospital but it’s too early to know when he’ll return.

Patrick Ewing will serve as Charlotte’s acting head coach Friday against his former team.

Clifford, 52, becomes the second professional coach to check himself into a Charlotte hospital in the last week. Denver Broncos coach John Fox, who used to coach the Panthers and still owns a home in Charlotte, was admitted last Saturday with chest pains after experiencing pain while on the golf course.
