Alabama Head Coach Nick Saban has tested positive for COVID-19 acccording from a statement from the University of Alabama.
“This morning we received notification that Coach Saban tested positive for COVID-19. He has very mild symptoms, so this test will not be categorized as a potential false positive. He will follow all appropriate guidelines and isolate at home,” the program said in a statement.
This is the second time this season that Saban has tested positive for COVID-19. He previously tested positive before Alabama’s game against Georgia but was asymptomatic. Saban was eventually cleared to coach the game against the Bulldogs after testing negative three times, indicating the initial test was likely a false positive.
