Live updates: Vanderbilt football, Clark Lea at SEC Media Days
New Vanderbilt football coach Clark Lea faces his first SEC Media Days on Wednesday. He will speak at 10:30 a.m. CT from the Hyatt Regency in Birmingham, Alabama.
Lea, formerly the defensive coordinator at Notre Dame, was hired at Vanderbilt in December.
SEC Media Days come amid many significant changes for the SEC and college football. New name, image and likeness rules came into play on July 1, allowing athletes to sign endorsement deals. With vaccine access widespread, the SEC is returning to a full schedule and telling teams that have COVID-19 outbreaks that they may have to forfeit, opening the door to more potential situations like NC State faced in the College World Series against the Commodores. And new NCAA rules allow football players to transfer once without penalty.
Follow along for live updates as Lea, offensive lineman Bradley Ashmore and defensive lineman Daevion Davis take the podium.
