University of Florida spokesman Steve McClain says the 45-year-old Austin missed practice Tuesday after being admitted to Tampa General Hospital on Monday with abdominal pain. Austin was diagnosed with mild gastritis, which typically includes inflammation of the stomach lining.
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 college level.
He spent the previous seven seasons in the NFL with Arizona (2007-09) and Seattle (2003-06) as a defensive backs coach.
