According to a statement released by the University of Arizona, head football coach Kevin Sumlin has tested positive for COVID-19.
“My family and I have been aggressive in our efforts to remain safe and healthy throughout the past seven months, my positive test result, while a shock, is a stark reminder of how we must all remain vigilant in our focus on hand washing, physical distancing and face coverings. I am feeling well and will be engaged in our ramp-up activities on a virtual basis until I complete the isolation protocol. I look forward to being back on field in time to begin preparing for the season.
We are all grateful to Dr. Stephen Paul and his entire football medical team who work hard day-in and day-out to ensure our student-athletes and staff are safe and healthy.”
Sending our best wishes and praying for a speedy recovery!
