Former Wyoming head football coach Joe Tiller is doing better, health-wise, than was reported in a national story earlier this week.

The family reached out to us and doesn’t consider this a “story.”

Joe Tiller’s health came to light in a report from CBSSports.com Wednesday. This was regrettably passed along in a local story we had yesterday.

The family cleared things up with statement Friday morning.

“Joe has had some health problems stemming from a genetic disease that was diagnosed some 20 years ago. He has been receiving treatments for it all the time. He went through some setbacks in early May which prompted all the fuss. It also resulted in a great many prayer chains and calls and letters from many friends. We are so blessed and grateful.”

It went on to say, “He is recovering from the setbacks, and we are planning a trip to Indiana to celebrate the arrival our twin grandchildren early this fall.”

That’s great news to hear, and we wish Coach Tiller and his family all the best moving forward.
