Urbana University Head Football Coach Tyler Haines will appear at the Mountain East Conference Football Media Day, scheduled for Wednesday at the Bridgeport Conference Center in Bridgeport, West Virginia.
The annual event begins at noon as coaches and select players from each of the 11 schools will be present to meet members of the media. Fans are encouraged to follow the Blue Knight Facebook page for live streaming of the event.
In addition, the MEC preseason football poll will be revealed on Wednesday.
The Blue Knights were picked 11th in last year’s vote among the head coaches, but should be much improved during Haines’ second season at the helm.
UU will open the 2016 campaign Thursday, Sept. 1, against Glenville State in the MEC Game of the Week. Kickoff is slated for 7 p.m. at I.L. & Sue Morris Stadium in Glenville, West Virginia.
UU’s home opener will be played on Saturday, Sept. 10 against West Virginia State.
