KNOXVILLE (WATE) - Former UT head football coach Johnny Majors was released from the hospital Tuesday after undergoing a heart valve procedure earlier this month.

Majors underwent a heart valve procedure on March 6. He will finish his recovery at home.

"I want to express my appreciation for my doctors, nurses and the support staff at UT Medical Center. I look forward to getting out and about," said Majors.

Majors, who played halfback at UT during his years as a player, led the Vols to three SEC championships during his tenure as head coach from 1977 to 1992.
