‘Seinfeld’ Cast: Where Are They Now?
It’s hard to believe, but 30 years ago, a show about nothing quickly became a show that everyone talked about. When Seinfeld debuted on July 5, 1989, no one imagined that the NBC sitcom, created by Larry David and Jerry Seinfeld about friends living in Manhattan, would go on for nine seasons. It spanned 180 episodes and was nominated for a whopping 68 Emmys, winning 10. However, the show’s inception was a bit different in the beginning. The group of four — Jerry Seinfeld’s Jerry, Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ Elaine, Jason Alexander’s George and Michael Richards’ Kramer — was originally a trio. “The pilot actually only had three. There was going to be a cast of four and the woman was going to be a waitress, and when the series got picked up, we changed the waitress to Elaine,” David revealed to Rolling Stone in 2014. As for the concept, David and Seinfeld came up with it while grocery shopping together, talking about the products on the shelves and realizing the conversation they were having was funny. “We both realized that this is the kind of dialogue we never really heard on television, or even movies, for that matter,” the Curb Your Enthusiasm star said. “So that was sort of the basis — that was just the way we communicated and the things that we talked about.” The pair also wanted the stand-up routines — which began every episode — to be part of the show’s premise, to show how comedians source their material from their friends.
Norvell is the third Bowl Subdivision head coach to test positive for COVID-19 along with Toledo head coach Jason Candle and UCLA head coach Chip Kelly. However, he'll be the first FBS head coach who will not be able to be on the sidelines during a game due to a positive result.
He'll be able to talk to the team virtually on game day, but his contact with the team will end when the team leaves the hotel in Miami ahead of the matchup with the Hurricanes. The arrangement is required due to NCAA rule 1-11-b which prohibits voice communication with teams except from specified areas inside the stadium.
Until at least Sept. 28, Norvell will be forced to self-isolate in his house away from his wife and daughter, both of whom tested negative over the weekend after Norvell's positive result.

"That’s probably one of the biggest challenges, being home and being isolated. Not being able to give a hug to my daughter or wife," Norvell said.
Florida State deputy head coach Chris Thomsen will step into Norvell's role Saturday and be in charge of all in-person activities in the game against Miami.
During the week, Florida Stately implemented a number of new technologies to allow Norvell to be able to watch FSU's practices live on his computer and even be able to communicate with those who are there in person.
"I was able to have access to multiple cameras on both fields to be able to go back and forth in real-time with what was going on at practice. Through speakers, I can communicate with coaches on things I was able to see..." Norvell said.
"I was unsure how easily and functionally it would operate, but it was pretty good... I’m excited about what technology allows us to do."
Norvell admitted that he struggled with being unable to be out at practice in-person. However, he's grateful for the technology that has allowed him to continue observing practice and leading meetings as if he was actually there.
"Missing Saturday’s walk-through, in my coaching career, the first time I’ve ever had to miss a practice. That was emotional for me. That was challenging for me," Norvell said.
