John Redman now has a release date from an Atlanta rehabilitation center, another positive sign as the Dalton State College assistant men’s basketball coach continues his recovery following a car accident that claimed the life of his fiancee on April 28.
Dalton State athletic director Derek Waugh confirmed to The Daily Citizen that Redman will be released today from the Shepherd Center for Spinal Cord and Brain Injuries. He will move to the Irene and George Woodruff Family Residence Center on the Shepherd Center’s campus. From there, he will begin rehabilitation Monday at Pathways, Shepherd’s outpatient facility.
“John has made an enormous amount of progress over the past three weeks,” Waugh said in a press release from the college. “That said, he still has a lot of work and a long road ahead. Please keep John and his family in your prayers.”
Redman and his fiancee, Brittany Huber, were in a single-car crash as the couple headed to Mobile for their wedding, scheduled six days later. Huber died in the crash, and Redman suffered a brain injury. The wreck happened on I-85 in Meriwether County, about 40 miles south of Atlanta, after Redman lost control of the car.
