TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - Alabama athletic director Mal Moore has been released from the hospital.

Moore's doctor, James B. Robinson, said the 72-year-old AD was released Thursday. He had been admitted to DCH Regional Medical Center in Tuscaloosa Tuesday evening with an irregular heartbeat.

Robinson says all the tests came back negative and Moore's prognosis "is very good." He says Moore can return to work whenever he wants.

Moore has led his alma mater's athletic department since 1999. The football building is named after the former assistant coach under Bear Bryant and Gene Stallings.

Moore was inducted into the Alabama Sports Hall of Fame last year.

He played for Bryant and has been part of nine football national championship teams as a player, coach or administrator.
