LAWRENCE, Kan.: Kansas coach Les Miles has tested positive for COVID-19 and is quarantining in his home, where he plans to fulfill his head coaching responsibilities remotely as the Jayhawks spend a week off before visiting West Virginia.
Miles announced his positive test in a statement Thursday. The school did not say whether any other players or staff have tested positive, though the Jayhawks have had clusters of positive tests since the beginning of the season.
Athletic director Jeff Long said Miles’ result came back through routine testing and the school is going through contact tracing protocols to notify anybody who has been in contact with him. Long said if Miles does not have a fever or other symptoms, there is a chance he could be able to coach against the Mountaineers on Oct. 17.
The Jayhawks are off to an 0-3 start in Miles’ second season in Lawrence.
