Pack's Bible home from hospital

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

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

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

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