He should be good to go by October 3 for JSU.

Well, we all knew something like this could happen. A coach testing positive was something that was absolutely going to happen.
While some in the media will point to Norvell having coronavirus as proof we shouldn’t play, I hardly think it’s a big deal.

In fact, I’d argue that it’s not a big deal at all. He’s going to have to sit out the Miami game, and should be fine by early October.
Teams prepared for this situation, and FSU has a protocol for who will take over. There’s no reason to panic.
Is it unfortunate? Sure, but it’s not a reason for people to worry. Norvell will recover and return when he can. The Seminoles will be just fine.
