LOUISVILLE, Ky. — A University of Kentucky football assistant coach is okay after a medical episode, officials confirm.

A spokesperson for the university said Cohen is continuing to be monitored by doctors and expected to be released on Monday.

“Out of respect for his privacy and that of his family, we will have no additional comment at this time,” the statement read.
