Baylor's Scott Drew Tests Positive for COVID-19; Jerome Tang Named Interim HC

The Baylor men's basketball team will be without head coach for the start of the 2020-21 season after he announced Sunday that he tested positive for COVID-19.

Drew said the positive result is from Friday's teamwide testing but he is asymptomatic and self-isolating. He also said it was Baylor's first positive test in 12 weeks, so the season is still on as scheduled. The rest of the team tested negative Friday and Sunday.

Associate head coach Jerome Tang, who has been with Drew throughout his tenure at Baylor, will be the interim coach.
