DALLAS (SMU/AAC) - Coaches and players from the 10 American Athletic Conference schools including SMU's June Jones, Garrett Gilbert and Randall Joyner will converge on the Hotel Viking in Newport, R.I., July 30 for the league's Summer Kickoff and Media Day, and fans will be able to follow all of the day's events through a broad range of digital coverage.

The centerpiece of the conference's coverage will be a live, three-hour program featuring in-depth analysis and interviews with coaches and players. In addition, a live video feed of Commissioner Mike Aresco's opening remarks and each coach's question-and-answer session at the podium will be available on ESPN3.

The show will be hosted by John Rooke and Pete Brock and will feature one-on-one interviews with each of the league's 10 head coaches and select players. It will be available on ESPN3 and will feature the results of the conference's preseason media poll.
