Kirk Herbstreit revealed via Twitter on Tuesday that he had tested positive for Covid-19. As a result, ESPN analyst will work from home on New Year’s Day, participating in the network College game day and its Sugar Bowl TV broadcast between No.2 Clemson and No.3 Ohio State.
This is the second time Herbstreit has had to work remotely during the pandemic; he also provided feedback from his home in week 4 after coming into contact with an infected person. The pandemic has also had an impact on Herbstreit assignments. For the first time in years, he is not calling the Rose Bowl, which was transferred from Pasadena, California to Arlington, Texas due to COVID-19 restrictions in California.
Other ESPN figures who have tested positive for Covid-19 include Scott Van Pelt, Matthew Berry, Dan Dakich, Doris Burke, and Todd McShay.
