Alabama’s Nick Saban cleared to coach after COVID-19 absence

Alabama’s Nick Saban cleared to coach after COVID-19 absence

Nick Saban will be back on the Alabama sideline this weekend.

The legendary college football coach missed last week’s 42-13 win over Auburn in the Iron Bowl after testing positive for COVID-19 on Nov. 25. Saban, 69, announced on his Thursday night radio show that he felt “100 percent” and was “clear tomorrow to travel with the team” as the No. 1 Crimson Tide prepares to face LSU in Baton Rouge on Saturday.

“I’ll be there,” Saban said. “I’m good. I think my time is up. I’m ready to get back in the swing of things.”

He noted that the team’s medical staff made the decision based on CDC guidelines. SEC protocols call for a 10-day quarantine, so Friday was the earliest Saban could rejoin the team in person. Offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian coached the Tide in his absence.

Saban also revealed some of the treatment he received while battling mild symptoms, most notably a runny nose. Saban said he received plasma treatment via IV.

“It really worked wonders,” Saban said. “I woke up the next day and I really only had slight symptoms of a head cold, maybe a little cough, so I felt like I had a cold. But that’s about it. I didn’t feel bad. I didn’t have a fever but whatever was in this plasma deal, it knocked it all out in one day. So from Thursday on, I felt great and 100 percent.”
