Former men’s basketball coach Denny Crum was hospitalized Aug. 31 after becoming ill while fishing in Alaska.

Crum was released from the hospital and returned home to Louisville two days after being omitted.

Diagnosed with a minor stroke, Crum was able to communicate shortly after being in the hospital.

His wife Susan took to Facebook to thank all friends and family for their support.

Crum, 80, coached the Cards form 1971 to 2001, accumulating a 675-295 (.696) record. During his tenure, he led the Cards to two national titles in 1980 and 1986, as well as six Final Fours.
