North Texas football coach McCarney hospitalized


DENTON, Texas (AP) -- North Texas football coach Dan McCarney has been hospitalized with an unspecified medical problem.

Athletic director Rick Villarreal said Monday that McCarney was taken to the hospital Sunday after experiencing what he called "medical difficulties." McCarney remained under observation Monday afternoon.

Villarreal says he doesn't know exactly what caused McCarney to fall ill.

The 58-year-old coach has coached the Mean Green since November 2010. He was formerly the head coach at Iowa State from 1995 to 2006 and an assistant at Florida, South Florida, Wisconsin and Iowa.
