Bible Diagnosed With Acute Myelocytic Leukemia


NC State offensive coordinator Dana Bible has been diagnosed with acute myelocytic leukemia, coach Tom O'Brien just said at his weekly Monday news conference.

O'Brien said he found out on Friday, and it was a very difficult day in Blacksburg on Saturday. Bible will undergo treatment for the next 30 days, and O'Brien will hire a temporary replacement to help the Pack get through this weekend's game against North Carolina. Bible coached the quarterbacks and wide receivers, too. He and O'Brien have coached together for 11 years.

"Prayers will be welcomed, and they’re definitely needed," O'Brien said.

Awful.  Best wishes to coach Bible and his family.
