The family of the former University of Washington coach says he will start chemotherapy next week to treat a pancreatic tumor.

James, 80, had gastrointestinal surgery this month in Seattle, has since been released, and is resting at home.

The family released this statement through the university:

“Coach James and his family are grateful for the many prayers and encouraging words and ask that they continue,” the statement says. “The family also asks for privacy as they fight this battle.”

 

The “Dawgfather”is the winningest coach in Huskies history, guiding Washington to a 153-57-2 record over 18 seasons. He won four Rose Bowls and a share of the 1991 National Championship before resigning ahead of the 1993 season.
