Pac-12 media day is here

In the old Mountain West Conference, the conference's media day came and went with little fanfare. In fact, outside the conference's markets, it was very much an under the radar affair. 

That changes this time around. Utah's move to the Pac-12 has opened up a great deal of new doors and one of those will be witnessed this week - as the Utes will get some mighty nice publicity from the college football world. 

Today's media day begins at 10 a.m. Salt Lake time with Cal's Jeff Tedford taking the podium to get things going.

Each coach and player's press conference will be streamed live from the official website - with Gus Johnson hosting. 

Kyle Whittingham will address the media members last, at around 1 p.m. Salt Lake time. 

Of course, this is just the beginning of a week long process that will take all Pac-12 coaches back east for a bicoastal media tour. The schedule for this week's events after the jump...

On Wednesday, the Pac-12 South coaches will be at the ESPN studios for a round of interviews with the World Wide Leader in Sports. Here's Whittingham's schedule:

So a pretty busy day for Whittingham. To end the day, all the Pac-12 coaches, along with Larry Scott, will address the East Coast media in New York City. 

On Thursday, while the Pac-12 North coaches are making their rounds at ESPN, the Pac-12 South coaches will be in New York visiting many New York-based media outlets. 

Offensive lineman Tony Bergstrom is set to join Whittingham for the press conference tomorrow.

Fall camp will open August 4th, so that means we're pretty much diving into the thick of things in anticipation for the start of the season.
