Sports Information

The University of Tennessee at Martin sports information office is a branch of the Department of Athletics and is responsible for all public relations for the school’s 15 sports. The office publicizes information on each Skyhawk team, its student-athletes and coaching staffs and is located in Room 40 of Skyhawk Fieldhouse, overlooking the volleyball court.

Sports information duties include, but are not limited to, distributing press releases, serving as media host and generating official statistics for home events, producing media guides/game day programs, coordinating event operations and maintaining the official UT Martin athletics webpage. The office also files historical records, submits information to the Ohio Valley Conference and NCAA on a daily basis and serves as the primary media liaison for the department of athletics through local, area, regional and national media.

Media interviews with student-athletes and coaches are encouraged, and every effort will be made to accommodate media requests. In-person interviews are preferred, but telephone interviews can be arranged through the sports information office. Players and coaches are available for interviews at the conclusion of each game after a 10-minute cooling-off period.

To obtain a media credential, accredited journalists must contact the sports information office. A wealth of resources from the sports information department can be found at The site features updated schedules, rosters, player bios, scores and statistics. Additional supplements may be found on the school’s Facebook (UT Martin Athletics) and Twitter (@UTMSports and @UTM_Gameday) social media profile pages.

Tennessee-Martin, UT-Martin, UT or Martin should never be used. The description Skyhawks should be used to represent all UT Martin athletic teams. Lady Skyhawks or ‘Hawks should never be used.
