Former Washington coach Don James to start chemotherapy
The most successful coach in Washington history will undergo treatment for a malignant pancreatic tumor.
The winningest coach in Washington football history is scheduled to begin chemotherapy next week in his battle against cancer.
The family of Don James issued a statement through the Huskies football program Wednesday announcing that the 80-year-old former coach will begin treatment for a malignant pancreatic tumor. James has also undergone surgery twice in the past month, per the Associated Press, for what the statement termed a "gastro-intestinal issue."
James is resting comfortably at home following the surgeries, the statement said. The James family asked for privacy.
James coached the Huskies from 1975 to 1992, going to six Rose Bowls in his 18 seasons and compiling a total record of 153-57-2. The Huskies won a share of 1991 national championship, going 12-0 and defeating Michigan 34-14.
