Nick Saban Positive for COVID Again w/ Mild Symptoms ... Out for Iron Bowl

Alabama football coach Nick Saban has tested positive for COVID-19 -- again -- only this time he's symptomatic and will likely not coach in the Iron Bowl against Auburn on Saturday.
"This morning we received notification that Coach Saban tested positive for COVID-19," the University said in a statement.
"He has very mild symptoms, so this test will not be categorized as a potential false positive. He will follow all appropriate guidelines and isolate at home."
#1 ranked Alabama is set to take on #22 ranked Auburn in the Iron Bowl this weekend -- a HUGE game -- but Saban is not expected to be on the sidelines this time around.
Saban previously tested positive for COVID back in October -- but was not symptomatic and he ultimately coached just 3 days after the positive test when Bama took on Georgia. The Tide won that game in a 41 to 24 shellacking.
After the game, Saban was seen on video dancing in the locker room with players while NOT wearing a mask.
Get well soon, Coach.
