- Miami Hurricanes coach Manny Diaz said he was 'feeling good overall'
- He said he will continue to work with the team virtually
- The Hurricanes' scheduled fixture for Saturday was postponed because of an outbreak of COVID-19 cases
Miami Hurricanes coach Manny Diaz on Friday confirmed that he had tested positive for the COVID-19 infection, adding that he will continue to work virtually with the team until he is cleared to return.
Taking to Twitter, Diaz said, "I have tested positive for COVID-19. 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', representing the University of Miami in the top division of American college football, scheduled fixture for Saturday against Georgia Tech was postponed earlier this week because of a number of positive COVID-19 tests.
Their fixture against Virginia Tech last week was on the verge of being postponed as they were left without the services of 13 players because of the virus. However, they played that game and registered a comeback win.
The Hurricanes are next scheduled to play on December 5 against Wake Forest, followed by a home fixture against North Carolina next week.
They are currently third in the Atlantic Coast Conference.
