STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) -Penn State coach Joe Paterno was released from the hospital two days after undergoing hip replacement surgery.
The 81-year-old coach had surgery to fix a sore hip that prevented him from pacing the sidelines. He coached the final seven games of the regular season from the press box.
A team spokesman said Paterno was released from Mount Nittany Medical Center on Tuesday.
The team doctor called the surgery a success. The school has said Paterno is expected back at work on Monday, when players return from Thanksgiving break.
Sixth-ranked Penn State won the Big Ten and a trip to the Rose Bowl on Jan. 1.
