FAYETTEVILLE, Ark.: Arkansas coach Sam Pittman has tested positive for COVID-19 and could miss Saturday’s game at No. 6 Florida.

Pittman was tested Sunday as part of the teams normal protocol and learned Monday morning that his was positive. SEC protocol for asymptomatic positives will require him to isolate for at least 10 days from the date of the positive test. Pittman retested Monday morning to confirm the results of Sundays test, and those results were pending.

Defensive coordinator Barry Odom will serve as the teams interim head coach. Pittman will remain a part of team meetings virtually while in isolation.

The Razorbacks are off to a 3-3 start in Pittmans first year – a significant jump from last years 2-10 campaign. Arkansas has won two of three and is coming off a 24-13 victory over Tennessee.
