Hornets coach Clifford back to work after sleep deprivation

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) Hornets coach Steve Clifford has battled headaches for the past two years.

But when the pain became so intense before a Charlotte home game last December it frightened him, and he couldn't ignore the problem any longer.

The 56-year-old Clifford walked away from the Hornets that day to undergo medical testing on his brain and get his life in order. Results revealed no internal problems, but the doctor's diagnosis was one other workaholic professional and college coaches may want to pay attention to: Clifford was suffering from severe sleep deprivation. And, if he didn't do something about it, the condition was only going to get worse.
