    Sam Pittman’s follow up PCR test has confirmed his positive Covid-19 result from Sunday as part of the normal testing protocol and he will not coach Saturday’s game at Florida.

    He will remain in isolation at home and continue to be a part of team meetings virtually.

    Defensive coordinator Barry Odom will be coaching the team against the Gators, but Pittman said Monday not a whole lot will change.

    “Somebody on the equipment staff will run the timing of practice instead of me and Barry will coach defense,” Pittman said. “But as far as the voice of the team and those things, that’ll be coach Odom.”

    Odom had a 25-25 record as the head coach at Missouri before coming to the Razorbacks.

    “He’ll do a damn fine job I’m sure,” Pittman said Monday.
