Associates of Brown said he was scheduled to meet them Thursday for lunch at TJ Ribs restaurant, which is adjacent to his office on Acadian Thruway. When Brown did not show up as scheduled, someone went to his office to check on his whereabouts.
Jim Talbot, a Baton Rouge businessman and long-time friend of Brown's, said the former coach was doing well and resting comfortably at Our Lady of the Lake Medical Center.
Brown, 67, resigned as LSU's head coach in 1997 after 25 seasons and has travel extensively around the world for speaking engagements and basketball clinics. Earlier this week, he was in Los Angeles to appear on an episode of "The Best Damn Sports Show Period."
Brown led the Tigers to the Final Four in 1981 and 1986 and to four Southeastern Conference championships. His career record, 448-301, is the second-best in SEC history behind Kentucky's Adolph Rupp.
