BY foxsports • February 26, 2014

The University of Miami announced on Wednesday that 12 of its 15 spring football practices will be open to the public.

Miami opens spring with drills at 9 a.m. Saturday at Greentree Practice Fields and culminates with a game at 6 p.m. April 12 at Sun Life Stadium.

The Hurricanes will hold open practices (beginning at 9 a.m.) on March 1, 2, 4, 6, 18, 20, 22, 25 and April 1, 8 and 10. A March 28 practice and the first two scrimmages on March 29 and April 4 will be closed.

Leading up to December's Russell Athletic Bowl, the Hurricanes allowed fans to watch their first five practices.

Coaches from UM, Florida International University, Florida Atlantic University and the NFL's Miami Dolphins will also host the first annual South Florida Football Festival for high school and youth coaches March 28-29 on UM's campus.

The two-day festival will also include ''Fundamental Friday,'' a 90-minute demonstration to assist high school and youth coaches in teaching players the latest fundamentals and techniques.
