Peoria Notre Dame coach in “very critical condition” after suffering cardiac arrest

PEORIA, Ill. (WEEK) — The Peoria Notre Dame community is in prayer this morning after one of its coaches was placed in a medically induced coma after collapsing from cardiac arrest.

The school released a statement last night, asking for prayers for Sean Gillen, adding he is in “very critical condition.”

A 2005 graduate of PND, Gillen was the football coach there for two seasons before resigning and staying on as an assistant under Pat Armstrong.

He currently is the owner of KG Performance, a local gym.

It’s been a tough year for the Peoria Notre Dame community, as just this February, their principal Randy Simmons passed away.
