A hospital spokesman says Texas Tech coach Billy Gillispie has been discharged after a six-day stay amid an investigation into alleged player mistreatment.

University Medical Center spokesman Eric Finley said Gillispie left the hospital sometime after 3 p.m. Thursday. Gillispie's voicemail box was full and he did not immediately return a request for comment via text message.

Athletic director Kirby Hocutt has said the university is investigating allegations that Gillispie mistreated players. Gillispie called 911 Friday morning, just hours before he was set to meet with Hocutt to discuss what the AD had heard from players Aug. 29. 

Gillispie is entering his second year as Red Raiders coach. His first Texas Tech team finished 8-23, winning just one Big 12 game. He was reprimanded in January for exceeding practice-time limits.
