Last week UNC Women’s basketball head coach Sylvia Hatchell stepped away from her coaching responsibilities after being diagnosed with leukemia. In response to the news all 15 ACC men’s basketball coaches and ACC Commissioner John Swofford, came together and created a touching “Get Well Soon” video in support of Hatchell that was posted on the ACC website. Check out their thoughtful words below.
Hatchell is confident she will make a full recovery.
“I am going to be involved in a treatment plan established by Dr. Pete Voorhees, medical oncologist, and his team from the UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center,” Hatchell said in a statement.
I will remain very much involved with my team and day-to-day operations here at UNC and expect to return to my sideline responsibilities as soon as possible. My veteran staff and team will be well-prepared and meet any challenges until my return.”
Our thoughts are with Sylvia Hatchell and her family during this time and we wish her a full recovery.
