Former Football Coach: Blanco still in hospital

Raymond "Coach" Blanco is still recovering at Tulane Medical Center from injuries suffered in a fall last weekend in New Orleans, a family spokeswoman said Friday afternoon.

Blanco family spokeswoman Marie Centanni through and e-mail said there is no change to report in Blanco's condition.

He and his wife, former Gov. Kathleen Blanco, were staying at a friend's home when the former "first gentleman" fell.

Centanni would not release more information about his condition.

Hospital spokeswoman Sarah Balyeat on Tuesday could not release any information at the request of the Blanco family.

On Tuesday Karmen Blanco, one of the Blanco's six children, said the family isn't taking calls, but appreciates the support.

"We appreciate all of the prayers and concerns," Karmen Blanco said. "We just need to have time to leave all the phone lines open for the doctors."

Kathleen Blanco, the state's first woman governor, served as governor from 2004 to 2008. The couple lives in Lafayette.

Raymond Blanco is the former UL vice president of student affairs.

He retired from UL in 2009, where he served as dean of students and in other posts. He worked at the university for nearly a half-century.
