SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) - Notre Dame offensive coordinator Mike Denbrock disclosed Tuesday the reason he missed the start of training camp is he's recovering from prostate cancer surgery.
Denbrock said he learned he had cancer while undergoing blood tests in June while applying for life insurance. He said the doctor believes he removed all the cancer.
Denbrock said it will be a while until he's back at full strength, but said he is getting stronger every day. He said he didn't want to say how much he's been working ''because my wife and my doctor will probably hunt me down.'' He said he's been able to do more than he expected.
He joked that the receivers were happiest to see him back, because coach Brian Kelly has filled in for him as receivers coach.
