Dan Mullen Tests Positive For Covid-19, Is Self-Isolating From His Family
It was reported earlier this week that the Florida Gators football program had upwards of 30 student-athletes in quarantine after 21 people associated with the program tested positive for Covid-19.
And as announced on Saturday evening, Florida’s head coach Dan Mullen has also tested positive for the coronavirus.
“Thank you Gator Nation for all your support for the program this week,” Mullen penned on Twitter. “Thankfully, everyone impacted is recovering well and has experienced mild to no symptoms.
“I have also tested positive for COVID and have received word that my test has been confirmed.”
Mullen’s announcement came one week after Florida’s loss to Texas A&M in College Station.
Ironically, we are also just one week removed from Mullen’s plea to UAA officials to let 90,000 fans “pack The Swamp” for Florida’s matchup against LSU, which was slated to happen on Saturday, but was rescheduled to Dec. 12 after the Gators saw a rise in positive tests.
In Mullen’s announcement, he shares that he is continuing to self-isolate from his family.
“I am proud of how our players, staff and campus community have navigated this unprecedented time and hope all continue to be safe,” Mullen wrote.
