Alabama: AD Moore resting comfortably at hospital

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) -- Alabama athletic director Mal Moore remains hospitalized at Duke University Medical Center.

University spokeswoman Debbie Lane said Thursday evening that Moore "is resting comfortably and continues to undergo tests required to further evaluate his condition."

He was hospitalized in Birmingham with pulmonary problems and transferred to the hospital in Durham, N.C., Wednesday night for more tests.

The 73-year-old Moore spent two days in DCH Regional Medical Center in Tuscaloosa last August with an irregular heartbeat, but was cleared to return to work immediately.

Moore has led his alma mater's athletic department since 1999 and has been part of 10 football national championships as a player, coach or administrator.

The football building is named after him.
