New UAB football coach Bill Clark will speak to fans at the event. Free Dreamland barbecue will be provided to UAB employees, students, alumni and fans. Members of the Marching Blazers band and spirit teams will be on hand to liven up the Blazer spirit. The first 400 UAB students with a student ID will receive a free UAB football T-shirt.

UAB named Clark as the Blazers’ new head football coach in January. He guided the Jacksonville State Gamecocks to a record-setting 11-4 2013 season in his first year as head coach. Clark has more than 20 years of experience, including serving as assistant head coach and defensive coordinator at South Alabama. He also was one of the most successful Alabama high school coaches as head coach at Prattville High School.
