KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Former Tennessee star player and coach Johnny Majors says "under the circumstances, I feel very good," four days after undergoing a heart valve procedure
The 78-year-old Majors issued a statement Monday through the University of Tennessee Medical Center, where he remains in stable condition. Majors said he was "extremely pleased" with the care he'd received and that he appreciated "the support of friends and family and also of supporters of mine from Tennessee and other parts of the country."
Majors played at Tennessee from 1954-56, finishing second in Heisman Trophy voting as a senior. He went 185-137-10 as a coach at Iowa State (1968-72), Pittsburgh (1973-76, 1993-96) and Tennessee (1977-92), leading Pittsburgh to the 1976 national title. He entered the College Football Hall of Fame in 1987.
