Moments ago, Kansas announces that its head coach is positive for COVID-19. Les Miles, 66, has coached the Jayhawks since last season.
Miles released the following statement:Today, I was notified that I have tested positive for COVID-19. I am beginning the isolation process at my home and will continue to fulfill my head coach responsibilities remotely.
“Although I will not physically be able to attend practice for the time being, I will be using the technology available for remote working to stay connected during staff meetings, meetings with players, etc.
“Thank you for your prayers and support in advance. I look forward to beating this virus and returning back to be with my team in person very soon. Rock Chalk!”
Although there hasn’t been an official announcement on whether he can coach for Kansas’ game against West Virginia, it’s unlikely that he will be on the sidelines for the Jayhawks when they travel to play the Mountaineers on October 17.
