The Southeastern Conference is considering moving its annual media days out of the Birmingham area for the first time.
It's reported that league officials are doing their "due diligence" in looking into a potential move, Associate Commissioner Herb Vincent said. Potential cities if the SEC decides to move the four-day event out of suburban Birmingham include Atlanta, Nashville and Dallas.
The SEC considered moving it to Atlanta for this year because of the new Mercedes Benz Stadium, home to the league's title game, Vincent said. It could also potentially rotate between multiple sites, or stay put.
SEC media days began in 1985 and now typically draws 1,000-plus attendees.
