Despite testing positive for COVID-19 last week, Kansas football head coach Les Miles plans to travel with the team and coach the Jayhawks against West Virginia in Morgantown.

It was inevitable that some coaches would test positive for COVID-19 this season. Alabama head coach Nick Saban tested positive this week, and Kansas football head coach Les Miles tested positive for the virus last week. Still, Les Miles plans on being at Kansas’ road game this Saturday and coaching the Jayhawks.

The good news is that Miles’ symptoms have been “minor” according to athletic director Jeff Long on Hawk Talk.
