Saban from Alabama was cleared for coach after the third negative test


0

Tuscaloosa, Ala. Alabama coach Nick Saban will be back on the sidelines against Georgia after all.

The Southeastern Conference, Saturday, authorized Saban to train in the match after he tested negative for COVID-19 in the past three days.

The move came hours before Saturday night’s match between the Crimson Tide, seeded second and third Bulldogs.

Saban initially tested positive on Wednesday with sporting director Greg Byrne. Team physician Jimmy Robinson said Saban was tested the next three mornings, and the initial result was considered a false positive.

“These three negative tests fulfilled the US Securities and Exchange Commission protocol on a false positive,” Robinson said. “Out of extreme caution, two additional PCR tests were performed at the same time on Thursday and Friday and were tested by a separate laboratory. Those tests were also negative.”

The initial positive result came from an outside lab that Alabama used to supplement the test conducted by the SEC.
