Mal Moore out of hospital
TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- University of Alabama athletic director Mal Moore was released from the hospital on Thursday, according to a news release from the University. Moore was taken to DCH Regional Medical Center on Tuesday night due to an irregular heartbeat.
"Coach Moore was discharged this morning," said Dr. James Robinson, Moore's personal physician. "All of the tests we ran on Coach Moore came back negative, and he is doing fine. He can resume his normal work schedule as soon as he likes. His prognosis is very good."
Moore, 72, has worked for Alabama since 1994 and served as the school's athletic director since 1999. Before that, he played on the Crimson Tide football team from 1958 to 1962 and served as an assistant coach at Alabama for 22 years.
In his time at Alabama, he's been responsible for numerous facilities upgrades, most recently the approval of a $9 million athletic facility that broke ground this summer. He was also responsible for the hiring of football coach Nick Saban, who has won two national championships since signing with Alabama in 2007.
