KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The University of Kansas' head football coach said his health is "pretty good" after being diagnosed with COVID-19.

In a video update posted on Twitter Sunday night, Les Miles thanked fans for their prayers and support. He said he is quarantined at home and that KU's football team is in "good hands."

"I'm still able to get to ZOOM meanings as we prepare our West Virginia game plan," Miles said in the video. "I can't wait to get back to our players and our coaches. As soon as it is safe to do so."

The Jayhawks Athletics Department announced Miles' positive test Thursday. Jeff Long, Kansas director of athletics, said Miles’ case was discovered because of the program's testing protocols.

The Jayhawks will play West Virginia Oct. 17, and Miles is expected to coach in person, so long as he does not develop symptoms or have a fever.
