BATON ROUGE - LSU has pushed the start of spring football practice back to Monday, March 1, head coach Les Miles announced on Thursday.
The Tigers were scheduled to start spring drills on Friday, Feb. 26. However, Miles and the staff have opted to push the start back two days in order to get LSU's new tight ends coach acclimated.
Monday's practice will be the first of five workouts for the Tigers next week, which ends with the first scrimmage of the spring on Saturday, March 6.
"We've had a great start to our offseason conditioning," Miles said. "The players have done an great job of doing what the coaches have asked of them. I like the attitude and the work ethic that this team has displayed so far. I'm looking forward to getting on the practice field with them."
