Florida State football coach Mike Norvell has tested positive for coronavirus.

According to Andrea Adelson, Norvell won’t coach the upcoming game against Miami after testing positive for coronavirus. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

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.
