The Big Ten announced its schedule for the league's coaches for this summer's media days, the first featuring 18 teams with the additions of four Pac-12 defectors: USC, UCLA, Oregon and Washington. Over three days beginning on July 23 at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Indiana, faces familiar and new will take to the podium to address their teams and, assuredly, the national storylines that make college football a year-round sport. 

Among the chief storylines will be Ohio State. Ryan Day faces a lot of pressure to win this season after falling behind Michigan in the conference pecking order. He went all in, with several staff changes -- including the unprecedented hiring of Chip Kelly from UCLA -- and roster additions through the transfer portal that make the Buckeyes seem like a national title contender. 

Meanwhile, can Michigan keep its dynasty going under first-year coach Sherrone Moore? The Wolverines have won three straight Big Ten titles and reached the top of the mountain in 2023, but coach Jim Harbaugh left for the Los Angeles Chargers and Moore is stepping into his first head coaching role at any level. 

Moore is one of five first-year coaches at this year's media days, joining Indiana's Curt Cignetti, Michigan State's Jonathan Smith, Washington's Jedd Fisch and UCLA's DeShaun Foster. (Northwestern's David Braun served as the interim coach in 2023.)
