Wolfpack's Bible goes home from hospital

N.C. State offensive coordinator Dana Bible will be home for the holidays after spending about a month in a hospital undergoing treatment for cancer, Annabelle Myers, the school's sports information director, said Wednesday.

Bible missed the team's final two games after he was hospitalized and diagnosed with acute promyelocytic leukemia. Myers said the cancer is in remission and that Bible has been released from the hospital.

She said Bible will continue to undergo chemotherapy as a precautionary measure for five to six months.

Bible, 56, has been on coach Tom O'Brien's staff the past 11 seasons, including eight at Boston College. Bible has coached two of the past four first-team All-ACC quarterbacks - Matt Ryan in 2006 at Boston College and N.C. State's Russell Wilson in 2008.
