Digger Phelps recovering from prostate surgery

The Associated Press

SEATTLE – Digger Phelps had prostate cancer surgery and is recovering at the University of Washington Medical Center.

His daughter said Wednesday that the former basketball coach and current ESPN analyst is resting comfortably. The 68-year-old Phelps, a regular at the American Century Championship at Edgewood Tahoe Golf Course, was diagnosed with prostate cancer on April 28.

Daughter Karen Moyer said the cancer was detected during a routine physical.

Moyer is a supporter of early cancer detection research through The Moyer Foundation, a nonprofit organization she established with her husband, Philadelphia Phillies pitcher Jamie Moyer.

In 2003, the foundation created The Gregory Fund at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center. It is dedicated solely to early cancer detection research.
