NC State assistant basketball coach Rob Moxley has diabetes, and back in the spring, it nearly killed him. Moxley opened up publicly for the first time on Thursday about the frightening diabetic episode that put him in the hospital for several days in May. The Wolfpacker has the full story.
Diabetic shock led to cardiac arrest and multiple strokes, and considering that it's incredible that Moxley is back in his full capacity as an assistant coach. The quick response by his wife, who was with him at the time and called paramedics, may have saved his life.
Moxley was back at it recruiting for NC State by July, and he was most recently spotted visiting Edrice Adebayo with Mark Gottfried.

Former NC State wing Ralston Turner particularly stepped up to help assistant coach Rob Moxley during his comeback. #ClassAct— The Wolfpacker (@TheWolfpacker) September 17, 2015
Good on ya, Ralston, and it's great to have you back, coach.
