Tarkanian feeling better after suffering from heart attack

  • Former UNLV coach Jerry Tarkanian could be discharged this weekend after he suffered a heart attack. His son-in-law Zafi Diamant said he's feeling much better. "He's been up and walking around, all in all feeling much better."

    Tarkanian was taken to the hospital last Wednesday after he complained of labor breathing, weakness and lethargy. Experts determined that he had pneumonia and tests also proved that he had a heart attack. 

    Diamant mentioned that a catheterization is required to be sure if anything else needs to be done in the next few days.
