The Southeastern Conference announced Wednesday morning that its annual football media days will be held virtually this summer due to continuing coronavirus concerns.

SEC Football Media Days had been scheduled for July 13-16 at the College Football Hall of Fame in Atlanta.

"Conducting football media days in a virtual format will provide us the opportunity to manage the event in a healthy manner as we continue to be impacted by COVID-19, and it will provide flexibility for our programs to adjust their preparation for the 2020 football season according to the preseason calendar that is expected to be expanded due to the cancellation of the spring football season," SEC commissioner Greg Sankey said in a release. "We look forward to returning to our traditional media days format in 2021."

The league did not announce dates and times for the virtual event but said it will include head coaches and student-athlete representatives for all 14 teams.
