OVC to hold football coaches’ teleconference live every week


Published (Volume 76, No. 3)


The OVC will hold a series of teleconferences featuring the league’s head football coaches.

The teleconferences will be held at 10 a.m. each Tuesday and each coach will join the call for about seven minutes at his scheduled time to field questions from the media about his team’s upcoming game.

Matt Griffin, the first-year head coach at UTM, will be on the teleconference at 10:42 a.m.

To access the call, dial 1-412-380-2000. You will be prompted for a passcode, which is 9592292. Once you enter the passcode, you will be instantly connected to the call.

When you are on the call, you are on live. There is no need to announce your arrival on the call.

Ryan Altizer, the OVC’s director of external affairs and football media relations, will moderate the teleconference. All members of the media are encouraged to call in and ask questions of the head coaches.
