A Letter from Head Coach Ed Orgeron

Dear Coaches,

The Tigers finished a great off-season program and are ready to start Spring Ball on March 7. We are excited about getting back to football!

I would like to invite you to join us for our annual Spring Football Coaches Clinic on March 28-29. Barry Alvarez with the University of Wisconsin is our featured speaker. Coach Alvarez led one of the best football programs in the country as Head Coach of the Badgers and is currently running a successful athletic program there as Director of Athletics.

Our lineup of speakers includes Special Teams Coach Bobby April and a number of outstanding college coaches from across the state of Louisiana. This will be a wonderful opportunity for you to come and “talk ball” with some of the best in the game.

Our spring practices are open to you so please come and join us at your convenience. Our Spring Game will be held in Tiger Stadium at 1 p.m. on Saturday, April 6.

I hope to see you soon!

Geaux Tigers!
