no. you'll def piss them off.
if you haven't heard from them, that simply means they ddn't consider your application.

calling to programs is beneficial and harmless if done before match season, showing your interest to them. but if done during match season, there is a big chance it will only piss them off.
there is no hard rule on this, you can go ahead and try.
but don't say i didn't warn you.
