Spring schedule announced

The Arizona football team has released their tentative Spring Football schedule. The Cats will conduct 15 practices over a month and a half.

Several position battles will highlight spring ball.

The second set of spring drills of the Rich Rodriguez era will kick off on Saturday, March 2 and the Wildcats will have four practices before the team heads off for a week for Spring Break.

The team will return to action on March 20 and will have five practies before the first spring scrimmage, which will be on Friday, March 29 at Phoenix College.

The Wildcats will practice four more times between April 1 and April 10, then conclude spring drills with the annual spring game on April 13.

All eyes will be on the quarterback position as the Wildcats will try to replace second team All-Pac-12 performer Matt Scott. Although nothing will be decided until the fall, senior B.J. Denker will compete with JC transfer Jesse Scroggins, former Louisiana Tech starter Nick Isham and redshirt freshman Javell Allen, although Scroggins may not be able to participate due to recent foot surgery.

The Wildcats will also have several other important position battle, none more important than trying to find a replacement for Kyle Quinn at center.

The Wildcats will also debut three new assistant coaches. Matt Caponi was promoted from grad assistant to safties coach. Charlie Ragle moved from operations to tight ends/special teams coach and Jim Michalczik is the new offensive line coach.

As of now only the two scrimmages are open to the public.
