IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Iowa coach Fran McCaffery says his 13-year-old son has a thyroid tumor.

McCaffery says he learned of his son Patrick's condition last week. A biopsy was performed on Monday and surgery has been scheduled for next week at the University of Iowa Hospitals & Clinics — one day before Patrick's 14th birthday.

The tumor has not been diagnosed as cancerous, and McCaffery says a further course of action will be determined once the mass is removed.

McCaffery and his wife, Margaret, have three sons and a daughter.
