Former University of Kentucky football player and assistant coach Mike Cassity has been battling cancer, but Western Kentucky coach Bobby Petrino said Wednesday he is “doing well” now.
Cassity was defensive coordinator under Petrino at Louisville and the two were reunited this year after Petrino took over at Western and Cassity lost his job at UK when coach Joker Phillips and his staff were fired.
“He had a battle with cancer and fought through it,” said Petrino. “He is doing very well. He is working half a day right now.
“He has beat the battle and will get better and better. He is a great coach and tremendous recruiter, and he is getting better.”
