Alabama coach Nick Saban and athletic director Greg Byrne have tested positive for COVID-19, four days before the Southeastern Conference’s biggest regular-season showdown.
Both said their tests Wednesday morning came back positive, but Saban said he didn’t have any symptoms by late afternoon. The second-ranked Crimson Tide is set to face the No. 3 Georgia Bulldogs on Saturday, and may be without their iconic 68-year-old coach.
“I immediately left work and isolated at home,” Saban said.
Saban said he informed the team via a Zoom session at 2 p.m. Wednesday and that offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian will oversee game preparations while he works from home.
The news came the same day that Saturday’s football game between the Florida Gators and the LSU Tigers was postponed because of a number of positive tests among Florida’s players.
