Nick Saban Tests Positive for COVID-19, Has Mild Symptoms

Nick Saban has tested positive for COVID-19. This story may sound familiar since he had a false positive earlier in the season. The University of Alabama said in a statement today that this time, Coach Saban is experiencing mild symptoms and will isolate at home:

This means that Nick Saban will be absent from the sidelines during the Iron Bowl against Auburn this Saturday. He could also very well miss next week's game against Arkansas.

Let's all hope that Saban has a speedy recovery and is at least running things through Zoom in the coming days.
