NOTE TO MEDIA: Due to the time constraints of the preseason schedule for the Chanticleers, all media interview requests for student-athletes and coaches must go through the CCU Athletic Media Relations Office. We will work to arrange the interviews around the schedule already set by the coaching staff for the preseason camp. We would request that all student-athletes interviews be conducted prior to practice, as there will be a 30-minute window prior to each practice where student-athletes can be made available for pre-arranged interviews. Other than those times prior to practice, the student-athletes will not be available for interviews.
