Michigan State University basketball coach Tom Izzo has tested positive for Covid, the school announced Monday.

Under CDC and Big Ten guidelines, Izzo can return to the team in person following a 10-day isolation period, the school said.

In the interim, associate head coach Dwayne Stephens will run practices. No other members of the MSU basketball program have tested positive since Big Ten daily antigen testing began Oct. 26. 

"This morning I tested positive for COVID-19," Izzo said in a statement. "Although I have some minor symptoms, I remain in good health. I've been extremely diligent for many months now, wearing my mask in public and around the office, while adhering to social distancing guidelines. I've been [w]racking my brain, trying to figure out if there was a time where I let my guard down for just an instance."
