Former UK Coach, Gillispie Hospitalized

Posted: Updated:

LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) - A hospital spokesman says Texas Tech coach Billy Gillispie has been discharged from the hospital after a six-day stay amid an investigation into alleged player mistreatment.

University Medical Center spokesman Eric Finley says Gillispie left the hospital sometime after 3 p.m. Thursday. Messages were left seeking comment from Gillispie and athletic director Kirby Hocutt.

Hocutt has said the university is investigating allegations that Gillispie mistreated players.

Gillispie called 911 on Friday morning, just hours before he was set to meet with Hocutt to discuss what the AD had heard from players on Aug. 29.
