Alabama Head Football Coach Nick Saban Tests Positive for Covid; Saturday’s Game With Georgia Still On

Alabama's head football coach, Nick Saban, and the school's athletic director, Greg Byrne, both tested positive for the coronavirus on Wednesday and immediately began self-isolation.

Above all else, this comes as concerning news for the health of the 68-year-old head coach.

Belichick said he recently spoke to Saban and noted how "vigilant" the coach has been with his team while playing in the middle of a pandemic.

Saban's self-quarantine is expected to last several days, leaving questions over who will coach the No. 2-ranked Southeastern Conference team in its scheduled game Saturday against No. 3 University of Georgia - if the matchup is not postponed along with other conference bouts originally slated for the weekend. "I think as soon as you travel, you get exposed to a lot more things and a lot more people".

When and how that changes upon Saban's contraction of COVID-19 remains to be seen. "I am confident in the protocols we have in place to handle positive results, and I will continue to follow our plan until I am cleared to return to our team in person".

Alabama planned to test everybody within the football program Thursday.

Saban said he was able to monitor practice Wednesday via Zoom and could talk on the phone with a staff member if he saw anything that needed correction. I'm just right down the street. I spoke with Coach Saban recently.

The University of Florida has suspended their football activities, including their game against LSU this weekend, because of a rise of positive Covid-19 tests on the team.
