Written by: Sun Belt Conference

Release: 07/03/2008

NEW ORLEANS – ESPN analyst and former University of Miami head coach Larry Coker will be the guest speaker at the 2008 Sun Belt Conference Media Days. The two day event begins the afternoon of Monday, July 21 and concludes at noon on Tuesday, July 22. Coker is slated to speak on Tuesday morning.

Coker served as the head coach at the University of Miami from 2001 to 2006. Coker amassed a 60-15 (.800) record while coaching the Hurricanes and was named the 2001 Bear Bryant Coach of the Year and 2001 AFCA Coach of the Year after guiding Miami to the 2001 National Championship. The Hurricanes were a perfect 12-0 that season dominating the Nebraska Cornhuskers in the Rose Bowl.

Coker had served as an assistant at several universities (including Ohio State, Oklahoma, and Oklahoma State) and as Miami's offensive coordinator from 1995 to 2000 before taking over as head coach.

The 2008 SBC Football Media Days will take place July 21-22 at the Hilton St. Charles in downtown New Orleans. The head coach and a top player from each of the conference’s football playing schools will be in attendance.

The preseason all-Sun Belt team and coaches preseason poll will be announced at 1:00 p.m. on Monday, July 21, and the opening day concludes with an evening reception and dinner cruise for all participants aboard New Orleans’ famous Steamboat Natchez.

Commissioner Wright Waters will open the proceedings on Tuesday, July 22 with a 9:00 a.m. press conference followed by New Orleans Bowl President Paul Valteau. Each head coach and player will be available to all media from 10:00 a.m.–12:30 p.m.

All events and announcements will be covered extensively on sunbeltsports.org. The Sun Belt Conference website will also feature video interviews.

Media seeking credentials should contact Sun Belt Associate Commissioner John McElwain (504-299-9066).

That should be an interesting guest speaker. The SBC could be a good place for him to go if he got back into coaching.

Who is our top player going? I would say it would have to be Boris Lee or Dion Gales. But looking from a leadership standpoint - Jamie has to be the one invited. This would instill yet more responsibility on him and the focus of the reporters there would put him in the spotlight under a different kind of pressure.

i would think boris, but sending jamie would certainly have its advantages. i agree that the spotlight and cameras would definitely instill the required awe and sense of responsibility needed for a quarterback/leader. i just don't know if he has earned it or not.

You earn the right to go to Media Day, it's not something given to someone who hasn't proven anything on the field yet! Surely it will be Boris, he's proven himself already!
