Head coach Rob Cushman will participate in the CCIW coaches' chat on August 7.

The College Conference of Illinois & Wisconsin (CCIW) will host the 2013 Football Coaches' Chat on Wednesday, August 7. Augustana head coach Rob Cushman will be one of the participants in the chat.

Media, fans and other followers of CCIW football are welcome to join the chat and ask questions of all eight head football coaches.

Joining the chat will be Cushman, Carthage's Mike Yeager, Elmhurst's Joe Adam and Illinois Wesleyan's Norm Eash from 10:30 to 11 a.m., followed by Millikin's Patrick Etherton, North Central's John Thorne, North Park's Mike Conway and Wheaton's Mike Swider from 11:05 to 11:35 a.m.

Before the chat, the CCIW will announce the results of the 2013 Preseason Coaches' Poll.

The online chat will be conducted by CCIW Assistant Commissioner/Sports Information Director Mike Krizman and all questions will be screened before they are presented to the coaches. The coaches will try to answer as many questions from the audience as possible.

The CCIW Preseason Coaches' Chat began in 2009 via Cover it Live, a live-event publishing platform that launched in 2007. Visit the link below to join in on the 2013 chat on August 7.
