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.
