Majerus Out Of Hospital

Utah coach Rick Majerus was released from LDS Hospital on Sunday, almost one week after being admitted to treat two blocked arteries.

Majerus checked out at noon and returned to his home at a hotel near campus, where he was resting. No timetable was set for his return to the Utes (8-6), and he wasn't expected to attend Monday night's game against Wyoming.

Majerus went to the hospital on New Year's Day after complaining of chest pains. On Tuesday, he had the arteries cleared, then spent the rest of the week hospitalized.

Majerus left the Utes after a season-opening victory over Idaho State to rehabilitate a surgically repaired knee that hadn't healed properly. He had planned to return to the team last week, before his heart problems.
