TAMPA, FLA. (AP) - Florida defensive coordinator Teryl Austin is being treated for stomach pains at a Tampa hospital and his status for Saturday's Outback Bowl against Penn State is uncertain.

University of Florida spokesman Steve McClain says the 45-year-old Austin was diagnosed Tuesday with an inflammation of the stomach lining. He was not at practice.

Austin became Florida's defensive coordinator this season, joining the staff from the Arizona Cardinals. He has been an assistant coach for 20 seasons, including 13 at the collegiate level.

He spent the previous seven seasons in the NFL with Arizona (2007-09) and Seattle (2003-06) as a defensive backs coach.
