This is not what college football fans want to be hearing right now. It’s not what we want to hear at all.
The last thing we need is another major figure in the world of sports testing positive for coronavirus.
Luckily, it sounds like Miles, who is 66-years-old, is doing just fine, and Long said he’ll be welcomed back by October 17 “as long as Coach Miles does not develop symptoms or have a fever.”
Hopefully, Miles continues to move forward just fine, and fans have him back on the sidelines in a little more than a week.
Get better soon, Coach Miles! The entire world of college football is cheering
