Nick Saban, Alabama’s Coach, Tests Positive for Virus

Nick Saban, top-ranked Alabama’s football coach, has tested positive for coronavirus, university officials said Wednesday.

Saban tested positive for the virus in October, but doctors concluded within days that the initial test had been inaccurate. On Wednesday, though, Alabama said he had “very mild symptoms, so this test will not be categorized as a potential false positive.”

The result means that Saban will miss Saturday’s rivalry game against No. 22 Auburn.
