LSU moves back spring practice schedule

LSU has moved back the start of spring football practice from Friday to Monday.

Coach Les Miles says he decided to change the schedule because of Thursday's hiring of former LSU quarterback Steve Ensminger as new tight ends coach.

The opening practice on Monday will be the first of five slated for next week, followed by the first scrimmage of the spring schedule on Saturday, March 6.

Spring practice remains scheduled to end with the annual spring game on March 27.
