Billy Gillispie signed a 5-year deal with Texas Tech last March. Today it was announced that Gillispie will be checking himself into the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota for stress and blood pressure. It’s been an interesting couple weeks for Gillispie.
It was recently revealed that players met with the compliance officers to complain about Gillispie. On the day Gillispie was supposed to meet with AD Kirby Hocutt, Gillispie went to the hospital. Hocutt later announced that Gillispie was done making day-to-day decisions about the basketball program so he could focus on his health. On Monday night, Gillispie called an ambulance again.
