The Pac-12 announced on Friday that commissioner Larry Scott has tested positive for the coronavirus, but it sounds like he is doing OK.

The conference released a statement about the situation, saying Scott got tested after experiencing mild flu-like symptoms.

Scott is said to be self-quarantining while continuing to operate in his role as commissioner.

The announcement comes the same day the conference said it will be playing a conference-only schedule in football this fall.

Scott, 55, has been the Pac-12’s commissioner since 2009. A recent report said he could be pushed out by school administrators.
