DENTON (AP) — North Texas football coach Dan McCarney is out of the hospital following a stroke one week ago.

McCarney felt his left side go numb Feb. 12 and was taken to an area hospital. Doctors later confirmed he had a stroke.

A university spokesman says McCarney was released Thursday and has returned to the office for about an hour each day.

McCarney has said he expects to lead the Mean Green through spring drills, beginning March 28.

The 58-year-old McCarney was hired to coach the Mean Green in November 2010. He went 5-7 in his first season last year.

Previously, he coached at Iowa State from 1995 to 2006 and has worked as an assistant at Florida, South Florida, Wisconsin and Iowa.
