University of Miami head football coach Manny Diaz says he's been diagnosed with COVID -- the latest in a wave of positive tests to hit the team.
"I have tested positive for COVID-19," the 46-year-old said Friday morning.
"I am currently in isolation and feeling good overall. I will continue to work with our team virtually as we prepare for our next game at Wake Forest."
The Hurricanes have been hit hard by COVID -- starting back in October when 8 players weren't available for the Oct. 24 game against Virginia.
Leaving 11 players unavailable for the Nov. 6 game against North Carolina State -- and then it grew again to 13 this past weekend against Virginia Tech.
On Monday, University of Miami officials announced a 2-week stoppage -- meaning the team would resume its season on Dec. 5, against Wake Forest.
But, WF has its own COVID problems which led to the school canceling this weekend's game against Duke.
Despite all of the COVID issues, the 'Canes are 7-1 on the season and are considered one of the best teams in the country -- they're currently ranked #12 in the AP Poll.
