A former Notre Dame Head Coach will not be making a scheduled trip back to The House That Rockne Built.

But the reasons aren’t personal: They’re medical.

Bob Davie, who coached The Irish from 1997 to 2001, is in his 8th season as coach of New Mexico. After his Lobos opened their season with a win against Sam Houston State on Saturday, the 64 year-old coach had what’s been called “a serious medical incident.”

His office issued a statement Thursday and said that the coach will follow the advice of his doctors and not make the trip on September 14.
