|OC coach Jackson |
Obion Central head football coach Shawn Jackson underwent surgery Wednesday in a Memphis hospital.
Jackson, who spent nine days recently at Baptist Memorial Hospital-Union City battling diverticulitis, said beforehand Wednesday he would have an “abcess removed from his pelvis” during the procedure.
Attempts to reach the coach this morning for an update on his condition were not successful.
The coach is not expected to be in attendance Friday night when the sixth-ranked Rebels play at 1-7 Haywood.
