TAMPA, FLA. (AP) - Florida defensive coordinator Teryl Austin has been released from a Tampa hospital after spending a day there being treated for mild gastritis.

University of Florida spokesman Steve McClain says the 45-year-old Austin missed practice and was admitted to Tampa General Hospital on Monday with abdominal pains. He says Austin was diagnosed with an 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 collegiate level.

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