Dtika responded by saying, “I feel good right now and it’s not a big deal.”
One source told ESPN that Ditka will not be in Bristol, Connecticut for the NFL Countdown shows this weekend but they reiterated that he will be fine following the scare.
“Coach Ditka is going to be fine. He did suffer a minor stroke tonight. Won’t be on the shows this wknd. He wanted everyone to know he’s ok.”
Prior to the stroke, Ditka had no known health issues, however, he did suffer a heart attack in 1988 while coaching the Bears.
Ditka appears to be fine and will be back to full health in a matter of time. Thoughts go out to the ole ball coach.
