"For the past 25 years, I have always given 110 percent to the team and this job," Olson said in the statement. "In light of this personal matter, I feel it's in the best interests of the team and university to take a leave of absence.
"It isn't a health scare but rather a personal matter that needs my undivided attention."
As much as I've loved hating this guy over the years - and his teams' dominance over Texas teams over the years - I do respect the man as a coach. At his age, I can't believe he's still a full-time coach at a premiere program - he's had a Hall of Fame career already and has nothing left to prove. He deserves some time to focus on his family, or whatever the personal issue is.
