The 2020 NFL season hasn't even started and coaches already are testing positive for the coronavirus.
Philadelphia Eagles head coach Doug Pederson has tested positive for COVID-19, the team announced Sunday night.
Pederson only shared the news with the team after testing positive for a second time. The 52-year-old is asymptomatic and is self-quarantining.
Any individuals who have been in close contact with Pederson are continuously being tested for the virus.
According to ESPN's Tim McManus, Pederson still will be coaching virtually while assistant head coach Duce Staley will take over day-to-day operations.
Pederson is the second NFL coach reported to have the coronavirus. New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton revealed that he tested positive in March.
Pederson is entering his fifth season with the Eagles. He is 38-26 in four seasons and led Philadelphia to a Super Bowl title in 2018.
