HOUSTON -- Houston women's basketball coach Joe Curl is back in the hospital.

Curl was released from a Dallas hospital earlier this week after being admitted with chest pains last weekend.

"I can confirm he is back in the hospital for more observation and to get checked out by his personal cardiologist. At this point, that is all we know," team spokesman Adam Quisenberry told The Associated Press on Thursday.

Curl, 55, is in his 12th season as Houston's head coach.
