Former Carolina Panthers coach John Fox hospitalized in Charlotte

Former Carolina Panthers coach John Fox will remain in a Charlotte-area hospital overnight Saturday after he became light-headed while playing golf.

Fox, who is now the head coach of the Denver Broncos, with a group of friends and family on a golf course near his offseason home when he started feeling dizzy, said team spokesman Patrick Smyth. The Broncos are currently on their bye week.

Smyth said Fox did not suffer a heart attack, refuting an earlier report by ESPN that Fox was taken to the hospital after he began experiencing symptoms of a heart attack.

Smyth said Fox was "in good spirits and undergoing additional testing at (the) hospital."

Later Saturday, Denver officials said Fox was being held in the hospital overnight for observation.

Fox is in his third season as Denver's coach after a nine-year stint with the Carolina Panthers.
