UCLA basketball coach Ben Howland is recuperating after having surgery to repair a ruptured right Achilles' tendon.

A team spokesman said Saturday that Howland had the surgery on Friday at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center and he's resting comfortably at home.

No details on how or when Howland sustained the injury were provided.

Last September, he had an appendectomy.
