Freeman to curtail schedule for medical reasons
December 25, 2004
NORFOLK, Va. — Norfolk State
University head men's basketball coach Dwight Freeman has announced
that a temporary medical condition will prevent
him from traveling for the next few weeks. Assistant
coach Rodney Martin will serve as head coach on the
road until Freeman’s doctor clears him to travel.
“With our encouraging start, I am disappointed that
I will not be on the bench for the next few road games,” Freeman
said. “But I have the utmost confidence in coach
Martin’s ability to lead the team, and our players'
ability to continue the improvement they've shown on the
court the past several games.”
Freeman will still work periodically in his campus office,
will continue to supervise practices and will be on the bench
for home games.
