Florida assistant hospitalized

TAMPA, Fla. — Florida defensive coordinator Teryl Austin is being treated for abdominal 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 undergoing a battery of tests and will continue to be evaluated at Tampa General Hospital. He was not at practice Tuesday.

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.

Austin is a Sharon native who played defensive back at Pitt from 1984-87 and was a graduate assistant at Penn State in 1991-92. He spent the previous seven seasons in the NFL with Arizona (2007-09) and Seattle (2003-06) as a defensive backs coach.
