MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Minnesota fullback Jon Hoese’s father has died following a stroke.

Terry Hoese passed away on Monday night, according to Gophers coach Tim Brewster and the family’s journal on the CaringBridge website. Jon Hoese rushed for three touchdowns and made several key plays in Minnesota’s win at Middle Tennessee last week while his dad was hospitalized and comatose.

Brewster said Tuesday he’s not sure whether Hoese will play for the Gophers this week against South Dakota. Hoese was given the game ball last week in an emotional locker room celebration, when teammates lifted him on their shoulders and chanted his name.

Quarterback Adam Weber is Hoese’s roommate and a fellow team captain. Weber says Hoese’s father was one of the Gophers’ biggest fans.
