Georgia Tech football coach Chan Gailey suffered a heart attack Monday while playing racquetball at the campus recreation center.

Gailey was taken to Piedmont Hospital after experiencing chest pains. He underwent a balloon angioplasty, a procedure that is used to clear a blocked artery, spokeswoman Allison George said.

"He's expected to be in the hospital three or four days," she said. "He will make a complete recovery."

George was not aware of Gailey having any previous heart problems. The coach turned 53 in January.

Gailey did not want the school to release any information about the extent of his blockage or how many arteries were affected.
