MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Wisconsin says assistant coach Howard Moore, who survived a car wreck two months ago, won't coach during the upcoming season after experiencing a medical issue and going into cardiac arrest.

Moore suffered third-degree burns in a crash in May that killed his wife, Jennifer, and 9-year-old daughter, Jaidyn.

The school said Monday that Moore recently experienced a medical issue at his Madison-area home that required him to be transported to a hospital. While in transit, he went into cardiac arrest.

The school says Moore will be moved to a long-term care and rehabilitation facility.

The Chicago native played at Wisconsin from 1990-95 and was head coach at Illinois-Chicago before returning to his alma mater during the 2015-16 season.
