On Tuesday, US time, the pirates officially announced that coach Bruce Arians (Bruce Arians) tested positive for the new crown and is currently in quarantine at home.
Arians told ESPN reporters that he is currently in no serious condition, with only mild symptoms, mainly coughing. Assistant coach and rushing coordinator Harold Goodwin (Harold Goodwin) will temporarily act as the coach.
Arians wrote in the statement: “I have full confidence in Goodwin and the coaching staff. They will help the team prepare for the game against the Jets. I look forward to completing the test as soon as possible, re-entering the training facility and returning to the team.”
The 69-year-old Arians suffered several health problems in his career, including prostate cancer in 2007, skin cancer and renal cell carcinoma in 2013, the latter forcing him to undergo surgery to remove part of his kidney.
Goodwin has been Arians’ right-hand man since 2007, having passed the Steelers (offensive striker coach and quality management coordinator), Colts (offensive striker coach) and Cardinals (offensive coordinator).
