  • Fran McCaffery is expected to coach the Iowa Hawkeyes after the surgery of his 13-year-old son. Reports suggest that McCaffery's son got his thyroid tumor removed and the surgery went as planned.

    "Today's surgery for my son Patrick went as planned," he said. "Doctors will continue tests in the coming days to determine further treatment. Patrick was in good spirits after the operation." 

    He also thanked the surgeons and "doctors and nurses at University of Iowa Hospitals & Clinics who have helped treat Patrick during this process."
