STARKVILLE, Miss. (AP) -Mississippi State coach Rick Stansbury was hospitalized Monday for tests after complaining of severe migraines and flu-like symptoms, according to a university spokesman.
It was not immediately clear whether Stansbury would be available to coach the Bulldogs in their next game, at Cincinnati on Thursday night. Associate head coach Robert Kirby has taken over in Stansbury's absence.
Stansbury, 48, became ill Sunday night and initially was admitted to Oktibbeha County Hospital, said Gregg Ellis of Mississippi State's media relations department. He said Stansbury received a shot at the hospital that provided some relief.
Ellis said Stansbury was moved Monday morning to Northeast Mississippi Medical Center in Tupelo, a larger hospital, for precautionary reasons. Ellis said more tests were planned ``to make sure this is nothing more than a virus.''
Stansbury was expected to remain in the hospital Monday night, with results from a spinal tap expected by Tuesday morning, according to a news release.
ough 2011-12. He has compiled a 215-118 record, including 7-3 this season.
