On Day 2, Georgia, Kentucky and Vanderbilt will speak. So will Ole Miss, where there will be a slight bit of interest in new coach Lane Kiffin.

Day 3 features Alabama, Arkansas, Tennessee and the other high-profile SEC newcomer, Mike Leach of Mississippi State. Auburn, South Carolina and Texas A&M will be on the final day, July 16.

This year’s event will return to Atlanta, which also hosted media days in 2018.
