University of Florida head football coach Dan Mullen announced he tested positive for COVID-19.

“Thank you Gator Nation for all your support for the program this week. Thankfully, everyone impacted is recovering well and has experienced mild to no symptoms,” Mullen tweeted. “I have also tested positive for COVID and have received word that my test has been confirmed. I’m continuing to self-isolate from my family, who all remain healthy, and am following all the guidelines set forth by UF Health, the CDC and our public health officials. I am proud of how our players, staff, and campus community have navigated this unprecedented time and hope all continue to be safe.”

The Gators announced earlier this week that 21 players had tested positive for the virus, forcing the school to cancel their game against LSU. That game has been rescheduled for December 12.
