2nd 911 call from TTU coach's home, ambulance sent


LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) - For the second time in 10 days, an ambulance has been sent to the home of Texas Tech coach Billy Gillispie.

Lubbock police Sgt. Jeff Baker said Tuesday that the emergency call came from Gillispie's home around 6 p.m. Monday and that an ambulance was sent. It was not immediately known whether he was hospitalized.

Gillispie is on indefinite sick leave and athletic director Kirby Hocutt says he is no longer making day-to-day decisions for the basketball program so he can focus on his health.

On Aug. 31, Gillispie called 911 and was taken to a hospital. It was the same day he was supposed to meet with Hocutt to discuss allegations he had mistreated his players. The school has reported excessive practice-time violations to the NCAA and reprimanded Gillispie.
