Michigan RB coach Mike Hart releases statement following on-field seizure at Indiana

In a frightening scene, Mike Hart was treated on the field for nearly 10 minutes as both teams took a knee and looked on.

The current Michigan and former IU running backs coach stayed behind in Bloomington after suffering a seizure during the Wolverines’ 31-10 win on Saturday.

On Monday morning, he released a statement through the Michigan program’s social media accounts.

“I would like to thank everyone for their support, messages, and prayers,” Hart said.  “I am truly grateful for the trainers and paramedics, the doctors and nurses at IU Hospital, Michigan’s team doctors, coaching staff, players and Coach Harbaugh.

“I would also like to thank IU’s football staff and team doctors.  I will never forget everyone’s kindness and generosity.

“My wife and I are thankful to be surrounded by such incredible people.

“Health-wise, I am back in Ann Arbor and things are trending in a positive direction.  I look forward to rejoining our team soon.”

Hart was a running backs coach at IU under Tom Allen from 2017 to 2020, and he was an associate head coach in 2020.  He returned to his alma mater Michigan in 2021.
