MARTIN, Tenn. – The University of Tennessee at Martin department of athletics is pleased to announce a “Skyhawk Coaches Caravan” event that will visit three towns in west Tennessee this summer. The caravan will make stops on Aug. 1 in Paris, Aug. 6 in Union City and Aug. 8 in Jackson.

Each stop will tentatively include head football coach Jason Simpson, head men’s basketball coach Jason James and head women’s basketball coach Kevin McMillan, as well as select local players, among others. Fans will receive a unique opportunity to meet-and-greet and have a question-and-answer session with the Skyhawk coaches as they make final preparations to start the 2013-14 season. The “Voice of the Skyhawks” Chris Brinkley will serve as the event emcee while Captain Skyhawk will also make appearances at all three stops.

All three events will take place from 6 p.m. through 8 p.m. and are free of charge. Free food will be available at all three stops while several door prizes – including shirts, drink coasters and koozies – will be handed out as well.

Signups for a grand prize will also take place at each stop on the Skyhawk Coaches Caravan. One lucky fan will receive a paid trip for two (including a free hotel stay) to UT Martin’s football game at the University of Memphis on Saturday, Nov. 9.

Don’t miss this unique opportunity to interact with UT Martin head coaches and enjoy free food courtesy of Skyhawk athletics.
