STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) -Penn State coach Joe Paterno is back home after spending several hours at a hospital being treated for dehydration.
Penn State spokesman Jeff Nelson says the 81-year-old coach was released Thursday from Mount Nittany Medical Center after being taken by ambulance from his home after feeling nauseous.
He underwent tests at the hospital but was not admitted.
Paterno has had a busy schedule of late, traveling to Philadelphia last weekend and meeting with fellow Big Ten football coaches earlier this week. Spokesman Guido D'Elia says JoePa was on the phone with recruits Thursday morning before going to the hospital.
Paterno is still scheduled to travel to Austin, Texas, to speak at a dinner Friday night for Longhorns coach Mack Brown.
