University of Alabama football coach Nick Saban is sitting out with the coronavirus.

The school released a statement saying he and athletic director Greg Byrne both tested positive for the illness.  

They immediately went home to self-isolate after getting the results.

The Crimson Tide are ranked 2nd nationally in the USA Today Coaches poll and play number three Georgia this weekend.  

The coronavirus has already forced two other SEC games scheduled for Saturday to be postponed.
