East Tennessee State University expects injured President Brian Noland to be back on the job in early December.
The university released a written statement this morning saying that Noland was released from Johnson City Medical Center on Friday afternoon and began recuperating at his home.
"As his condition continues to improve, it is expected that he will begin the transition back to campus in early December as his rehabilitation process allows," ETSU Chief of Staff Jane Jones said in the statement. "He remains in daily conversation with university staff members but requests no visitors at this time."
Noland was injured in a late-afternoon crash Nov. 18 at the intersection of West Watauga Avenue and West Market Street. The family has not released information about the extent of his injuries, but ETSU said last week he had a "full range of motion."
"President Noland and his family express their deep appreciation for the many cards, flowers, food, and messages that have been sent to them," Jones said in this morning's statement, "and they wish everyone at ETSU and within the community a blessed, safe, and restful Thanksgiving holiday."
