Miami Hurricanes’ Manny Diaz tests positive for coronavirus

The Hurricanes had their schedule moved around recently because of positive tests and contact tracing.

Miami Hurricanes coach Manny Diaz has tested positive for coronavirus, he announced Friday morning.

Diaz said via Twitter that he is isolating and “feeling good overall.” He’ll continue to work virtually.

His No. 12 ′Canes have experienced an uptick in positive tests and subsequent quarantining recently. On Monday, the ACC overhauled its schedule to push Miami’s next two games back because of the virus. The team was initially set to host Georgia Tech this weekend and Wake Forest on Nov. 28 but will instead have the two weeks off.

Miami is now scheduled to play Wake Forest on Dec. 5, followed by home games against North Carolina and Georgia Tech.

The 46-year-old Diaz is at least the third major coach in Florida to do so, after Florida State’s Mike Norvell and the Gators’ Dan Mullen.
