Now the embattled Texas Tech coach has been ordered to live in a stress-free environment for the next 30 days as he tries to get his blood-pressure under control.
This message came to the Lubbock Avalanche Journal in a text message from an unidentified person.
The Avalanche-Journal received a text message from an unknown source Sunday night. The text said Gillispie had been treated at the clinic for abnormal headaches and kidney problems and was ordered to live in the stress-free environment while trying to get his high blood pressure under control.
A text was sent to Gillispie’s phone number and the response to the A-J confirmed the information was accurate.
After a hospital stay in Lubbock, the former Kentucky coach spent four days at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota. Meanwhile, as his players have met with Texas Tech administrators about Gillispie’s behavior and coaching methods, the school has placed the basketball coach on indefinite sick leave.
