Alabama AD hospitalized for heart problems

Posted: Updated:

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - Alabama athletic director Mal Moore has been hospitalized with heart problems.


University spokeswoman Debbie Lane said Moore was scheduled to be admitted to Duke University Medical Center Wednesday night for tests. He had been admitted to Brookwood Hospital in Birmingham for tests and treatment. Lane said no further information was available on the 73-year-old's status.


The AD spent two days in DCH Regional Medical Center in Tuscaloosa in August with an irregular heartbeat. His doctor, James B. Robinson, said at the time that the tests came back negative and Moore was cleared to return to work immediately.


Moore has led his alma mater's athletic department since 1999 and hired Nick Saban, who has led the Crimson Tide to three national titles. The football building is named after the former assistant coach under Bear Bryant and Gene Stallings.
