KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT.) -- The Southeastern Conference on Friday walked back guidelines preventing virtual interaction between players and coaches while campuses are shut down due to the coronavirus pandemic. The SEC forbade football programs from meeting online two weeks ago to make sure some teams were given any kind of competitive advantage.
According to CBS Sports, the SEC sent a memo to all 14 member institutions to - beginning Monday - allow virtual meetings using applications like Zoom and FaceTime. Each program will be limited to just two hours of instruction per week.
