UNLV Runnin’ Rebels head coach T.J. Otzelberger has tested positive for Covid-19, and his team will be missing at least the next three scheduled games because of contact tracing. Otzelberger put out a statement confirming the result.
A rapid antigen test and a PCR test both revealed that I am Covid-19 positive. I appreciate the outstanding care of our medical team and I am now in the required isolation. I look forward to returning to the team as soon as possible and in the meantime, I will remain connected to our team remotely. I encourage everyone to continue to follow all health and safety guidelines as we battle the pandemic together.
UNLV is 1-4 this season so far, the second under Otzelberger. They picked up a 68-58 win in their last outing over Kansas State on December 5th.
