Former Louisville basketball coach Denny Crum is recovering from a recent stroke in a local hospital, according to Denny Crum Scholarship Foundation principle fundraiser Jonathan Israel.
"Hall of Fame basketball coach Denny Crum suffered a stroke this past week and is now recovering in a local hospital," Israel tweeted Tuesday night. "Coach Crum and his family appreciates the thoughts, prayers and also their privacy while he is recovering. No other statements."
The 82-year-old also suffered a stroke in August 2017 while fishing in Alaska and recovered at a local hospital.
Crum's coaching career spanned three decades as he served as head coach for the Louisville Cardinals' men's basketball program from 1971 through 2001. During his tenure, he tallied a 675-295 overall record that included national championships in 1980 and 1986.
Prior to coaching, the California native played two seasons at UCLA as a guard.
Crum was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in 1994.
