Kansas football coach Les Miles provides an update on his condition in short Twitter video
It's been four days since Kansas football coach Les Miles announced he had tested positive for COVID-19, but the second-year KU coach's spirits appear to be in good shape.
Miles shared as much on Sunday in a short video posted to Twitter that updated his condition.
"I am quarantined in my house, my health's pretty good, so I'm very thankful for that," Miles said in the 35-second video.
The plan at the time of KU's announcement about Miles' positive test was for him to be back with the team this coming Saturday when the Jayhawks travel to West Virginia for an 11 a.m. kickoff on Saturday in Morgantown.
There has been no update about whether that's still the plan or if it's even possible, but Miles, who said he has been conducting his business through Zoom meetings since isolating in his Lawrence home, said he was eager to get back to his team and his coaching staff.
Although Miles has been able to meet with his staff via Zoom, he will not do so with the media on Monday in his normal weekly press conference time slot.
Instead, four KU assistant coaches will be made available to the media for brief interviews Monday morning. They include offensive coordinator Brent Dearmon, recruiting coordinator Joshua Eargle, defensive coordinator D.J. Eliot and special teams coordinator Jonathan Wallace.
Dating back to his days at LSU, it has been a long-standing practice of Miles' teams that coordinators do not speak with the media during the season. But the chance to talk with a few of them on Monday should shed some light on KU's struggles to open the season.
Fresh off of their second bye week of the 10-game season, the Jayhawks sit at 0-3 overall and 0-2 in Big 12 play, with a 50-game conference road losing streak still in tact.
