Louisville Coach Stops Interview Complaining of Chest Pain

August 17, 1996

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) _ Louisville football coach Ron Cooper stopped a radio interview Friday night complaining of chest pain and was taken to a hospital.

Jewish Hospital spokeswoman Gina Meckler said Friday night that an initial diagnosis showed only that Cooper was suffering from exhaustion.

During a break on WHAS-AM’s ``Sports Talk″ show, Cooper told host Tony Cruise that he wasn’t feeling well and would have to stop the interview.

An ambulance was called to the station and Cooper was taken to the hospital for observation and tests. He walked out of the station but rode in the ambulance to the hosital.

Cooper, who has just finished the first week of football practice, said he planned to be at Saturday morning’s scrimmage.
