Miami Hurricanes Football: Spring Practice interviews, recaps 4/12

The focus shifts to defense today


Another Thursday, another spring practice session for the Miami Hurricanes.

Mere days in front of the Spring Game, which will be held at Hard Rock Stadium, Miami hit the practice field to get some work in. After the session, the spotlight was on the assistant coaching staff, which has its turn in front of reporters this week.

After the Offensive Assistants had their day to speak to the media on Tuesday, the Defensive Assistants had their turn on Thursday. The videos are below, including our first times hearing from new DL coach Jess Simpson and new OLB coach/10th assistant Jonathan Patke. Watch and enjoy:

Head Coach Mark Richt (who switched his availability from Tuesday to Thursday)

That’s it for today.
