Grand Forks, N.D. – With some snow still remaining on the playing surface at Memorial Stadium, head coach Chris Mussman announced on Wednesday that his North Dakota football team will once again have the start of spring practices pushed back.

“The coaches and players are ready to get out there on the field, but it is just not ready for us yet,” Mussman said. “Our whole focus this spring is to teach these young guys our system and we need to have a full field in order to do that.  We are supposed to have some warmer weather over the next couple of days and that will allow us to get the field completely cleared off and start up on Friday.”

With the start date being pushed back to Friday, one of the sessions missed earlier this week will be made up on Sunday. The team’s weekend practice schedule will be Friday at 3:45 p.m., Saturday at 1:45 p.m. and Sunday’s practice time is to be determined.  All practices are scheduled for Memorial Stadium and will be open to the public.

The coaches and players will resume their regular spring practice schedule on Monday with a 3:45 p.m. start time.
