Providence College men’s basketball coach Ed Cooley is returning home after being admitted to a Cincinnati area hospital.

Cooley left Saturday’s game at Xavier for an unspecified condition. He exited the court two minutes after the second half after falling ill.

The Friar’s head coach stayed overnight at the hospital for testing and was released Sunday morning.

The details surrounding his illness are unclear, but the PC Athletics Department says he plans to coach the team’s next game on Wednesday against Villanova.
