At the University of Alabama, head football coach Nick Saban and athletic director Greg Byrne have tested positive for the coronavirus. The diagnoses come after the Southeastern Conference canceled two games this weekend due to COVID-19 outbreaks — Vanderbilt at Missouri and LSU at Florida. The Florida cancellation came just days after Gators coach Dan Mullen called on his university to pack 90,000 students and fans into its Gainesville football stadium, citing Florida Governor Ron DeSantis’s lifting of all restrictions on the size of public gatherings.
