NAPLES, Fla. — Legendary Chicago Bears coach Mike Ditka is recovering in a Florida hospital after suffering a heart attack earlier this week.
Sources tell WGN he was playing golf Wednesday before he was hospitalized. Doctors inserted a pacemaker and he is expected to head home in three or four days for rehab.
Ditka, who turned 79 in October, has had heart trouble in the past. He famously returned to work 11 days after suffering a heart attack while coaching in 1988.
