Wildcats' coach McBride hospitalized with health scare Weber State coach Ron McBride had to leave his team's 59-27 Big Sky Conference-title clinching win over Idaho State on Saturday because of some health issues.

McBride, 69, felt some dizziness, shortness of breath and a little pain in his chest early in the fourth quarter of his team's victory at Pocatello. He left the field on a golf cart and went straight to Portneuf Medical Center to be checked out. He was kept overnight for observation but is expected to be OK.

He was in good spirits (after being evaluated), said Weber State sports information director Brad Larsen.

McBride, who suffered a heart attack in 2004, signed a four-year contract to remain with the Wildcats through the 2012 season earlier in the week.
