Three months away from the gridiron is long enough.
The Utah State football team is taking the field once again, and the public is welcome to come see the returners and newcomers for the Aggies. Coming off an 11-2 season and headed into the Mountain West Conference, expectations are high for a returning group headlined by 10 returning all-WAC honorees.
The biggest changes are on the coaching staff, as Matt Wells begins his first spring as head coach. The program also has two new coordinators in offensive coordinator Kevin McGiven and defensive coordinator Todd Orlando. With those changes and several new position coaches, the Aggies are looking to find the same (or better) success with a few new faces.
Utah State will have 15 open practices from March 19 to the annual Blue v. White Spring game on April 20. Check out the dates below, provided in a school news release:
