Hall of Fame Baylor football coach admitted to ICU

Former Baylor University head football coach Grant Teaff was in the intensive care unit of Providence Health Center Thursday.

Teaff was admitted to the ICU after blacking out Monday while walking to his car at his office adjacent to Baylor’s campus. Teaff drove himself to the emergency room. Doctors discovered Teaff had multiple blood clots in his lungs, he said.

Teaff said he expects to be out of ICU by early next week. Teaff said he’ll be cheering from his hospital room Saturday when Baylor hosts former Southwest Conference opponent Rice at McLane Stadium.

Since February 1994, Teaff has been executive director of the Waco-based American Football Coaches Association. Teaff was head coach of the Bears from 1972 to 1992, finishing with a 128-105-6 record overall. In that time, Teaff coached the Bears to eight bowl appearances and two Southwest Conference Championships.
