SEC Media Days is officially upon us again, which means the long football offseason is finally almost over.
The annual gathering of media and SEC coaches and players begins today, July 15th down in Hoover, Alabama. All 14 SEC teams will be represented by their head coaches and three players chosen by those coaches to accompany them.
For Tennessee, head coach Jeremy Pruitt is bringing with him redshirt junior quarterback Jarrett Guarantano, redshirt senior linebacker Darrell Taylor, and senior linebacker Daniel Bituli. It marks the first time for UT that a quarterback has been selected to represent the Vols since Josh Dobbs came with former head coach Butch Jones in 2016.
Every head coach and player representative goes through a marathon of interviews while down in Hoover. From “Radio Row” to the main stage, there will be no shortage of soundbites, videos, and photos from this week’s event.
Pruitt and his three players are scheduled to make the rounds on Tuesday, starting at approximately 2:30 PM Eastern. Tennessee will have to wait for Georgia’s Kirby Smart and his players as well as Ole Miss head coach Matt Luke and his three players to finish up before taking the stage.
The SEC Network will televise all the main stage interviews and will provide extensive coverage online, on radio, and on television of all the action.
Here’s a full schedule of when each head coach is supposed to speak on the main stage in front of the gathered media and broadcast live via the SEC Network.
