Former Missouri football coach Gary Pinkel is being treated for the recurrence of his cancer, he revealed Sunday during an interview on SportsZone.”I’m doing good. I had to get treatment again for the first time in four years. My cancer came out of remission, and so I had treatment last month. I’m doing fine,” Pinkel told KMIZ-TV.center_img “With my type of lymphoma, you’ll never be healed. But that’s kind of why I retired when I did — I just wanted to not go back and regret working 85 hours a week, 35 weeks out of the year when I could be doing other things with my family and my eight grandkids.”Pinkel, 67, was first diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma in May of 2015. He confirmed a year later that the cancer was in remission, but said it now requires more treatment, though he remains optimistic about tackling the disease once and for all.
