After testing positive for COVID-19 on Wednesday, Alabama head coach Nick Saban recorded three negative tests on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, which makes him eligible to coach on the field for tonight's game against Georgia per SEC COVID-19 protocols.
Under SEC protocols, Wednesday's positive test is considered a false positive. In addition to the three negative tests required to be cleared to coach, Saban was tested two other times "out of an abundance of caution," Alabama team physician Dr. Jimmy Robinson said in a statement today. Those tests produces negative results as well, and Robinson said Saban has remained asymptomatic.
Georgia-Alabama kicks off tonight at 8 p.m. ET.
