Nick Saban, arguably the greatest coach in college football history, has tested positive for COVID-19.

In addition to the 68-year-old head coach, Alabama's athletic director, Greg Byrne, has also tested positive for Coronavirus, the school says:

Saban had been slated to lead the Crimson Tide, currently the No. 2 team in the country, against Georgia, the No. 3 team in the country, on Saturday. If the game goes on at all, it appears it will do so without the six-time National Champion coaching for Alabama.

Saban's 251 career victories are the most among active college coaches, and the eighth-highest mark in NCAA history.
