BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - Hundreds of football fans are expected to be in Hoover this week to greet football coaches and players from across the Southeastern Conference.

The SEC will hold its annual Media Days conference Wednesday through Friday at the Wynfrey Hotel in Hoover. Hundreds of fans are expected to be at the conference, seeking autographs from and pictures of coaches and players attending.  

Crowds are expected to be larger on Wednesday than the other days because coaches and players from both Alabama and Florida will be attending that day. Last year, fans crowded the lobby to get autographs and pictures of Alabama head football coach Nick Saban.
