Alabama athletic director Mal Moore was released from a local hospital where he spent two nights under observation for an irregular heartbeat.

His personal physical, Dr. James Robinson, announced Moore was released.

"Coach Moore was discharged this morning," Robinson said. "All of the tests we ran on Coach Moore came back negative, and he is doing fine. He can resume his normal work schedule as soon as he likes. His prognosis is very good."

Moore was taken to DCH Regional Medical Center on Tuesday.

The 72-year-old has been Alabama's athletic director since Nov. 1999. He played for Bear Bryant as a backup quarterback from 1958-62 and coached at Alabama from 1965-82 and 1990-93.

Moore was named assistant athletic director in 1994.
