Florida State football coach Mike Norvell has tested positive for the coronavirus and won't coach the Seminoles in-person this week as they prepare for Miami.

Norvell released a statement saying he tested positive Friday but is feeling fine. He said his wife and daughter have tested negative.

Deputy head coach Chris Thomsen is taking over Norvell’s duties, but the first-year Florida State head coach said he still intends to contribute.

Florida State athletic director David Coburn says he has been in contact with the Atlantic Coast Conference and Miami and currently they have no reason to believe next week's game is in jeopardy.
