LEWISBURG, Pa. (AP) -Bucknell coach Pat Flannery was hospitalized and undergoing medical tests Friday, two days after leaving the bench during a game.
Flannery appeared to slip on the sideline after arguing a foul call in the second half of Bucknell's 56-54 home loss Wednesday to Lehigh. He stayed on the bench for two minutes before going to the locker room, and later checked himself into Evangelical Community Hospital.
``In the second half, he was feeling under the weather. It happened quick,'' team spokesman Jon Terry said Friday. ``He wasn't feeling well, and he decided he was not doing any good to be on the bench.''
Flannery's symptoms were not made public.
``Since this is a personal medical situation, Flannery and his family are requesting any further details be kept private at this time,'' the school said in a statement.
Flannery was listed Friday in good condition, Terry said, though it was unclear when he would be released from the hospital or return to the bench.
Three years ago, Flannery took a three-game leave of absence in the middle of the season, an absence he later said was stress-related.
Assistant Nathan Davis, who took over Wednesday night, would lead the Bison if Flannery cannot coach Bucknell's next game, Sunday at home against Army.
