The Auburn football team is just over the midway point of its first spring practice under new head coach Gus Malzahn.
With a totally new coaching staff, this is a very important spring for many players to make a good impression on the new staff. Along with the mantra of it being a "new day," the coaching staff has also preached that every position is wide open.
"Every position is wide open. Everybody has a clean slate," said Malzahn prior to spring practice beginning. "I've tried, even though I was here before, not to have any pre-judgments on any of the players. We're moving forward." (h/t auburntigers.com)
The Tigers are preparing for the annual A-Day game on April 20, which is expected to have a large turnout.
