Bobby Bowden, the legendary former head football coach of Florida State, has tested positive for coronavirus.

“I don’t feel bad yet,” Bowden told the Tallahassee Democrat. “I guess I can loaf around the rest of the week.”

He was treated at a local hospital for a leg infection and then tested positive after he was released. His joke to the local Florida paper suggests that he has not had any symptoms of the virus. Bowden turns 91 in November.

Bowden was the head coach of Florida State from 1976 through 2009, following a stint as the head coach of West Virginia. His career record as a head coach is 377-129-4.
