Cal has decided to delay the start of spring practice by four days. It will now begin on Saturday, March 14 rather than Tuesday, March 10. The session will still end on April 18. The two practices the Bears are losing due to the delay will be made up on other dates, most likely squeezed in on a couple of Sunday. That has yet to be finalized.
The reason the Bears have decided to push back the start of spring is to give the two new coaches on the staff — offensive coordinator Andy Ludwig and offensive line coach Steve Marshall — a little extra time to prepare.
