The University of Michigan will produce two live signing day broadcasts this year featuring commentary from all of the new coaches.

ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- MGoBlue.com, the official website of the University of Michigan Athletic Department, will provide exclusive all-day coverage of National Signing Day on Wednesday (Feb. 4) with a free, live webcast running from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. EST.

Anchoring the coverage are two Inside Michigan Football Signing Day shows that will emanate live from Schembechler Hall. U-M will produce a live two-hour Signing Day Special Webcast from 8-10 a.m. and a one-hour Signing Day Wrap-up Show starting at 3 p.m.
