Alabama coach Nick Saban tested positive for COVID-19 on Wednesday and is self-isolating at home, the university announced.
Alabama athletic director Greg Byrne also tested positive on Wednesday, according to the school.
“I found out earlier this afternoon that I had tested positive for COVID-19,” Saban said in a statement. “I immediately left work and isolated at home. At this time, I do not have any symptoms relative to COVID, and I have taken another PCR test to confirm my diagnosis.”
Saban, 68, said he informed his players of his positive test in a Zoom call at 2 p.m. on Wednesday.
