AUSTIN – Following a week-long pause to due COVID-19 protocols, Texas will resume spring football practice on Thursday, the team announced Wednesday night.
Texas held its first practice on March 23. One day later, the program announced it was going on a pause “as a result of student-athletes impacted by COVID-19 protocols.” The Longhorn medical staff has now cleared the team to return to full spring practice activities on Thursday morning.
The interruption will alter new coach Steve Sarkisian’s original agenda, which had 14 practices scheduled from March 23 through April 23 leading into the annual Orange-White spring game on April 24 at Royal-Memorial Stadium. Texas has not yet announced an altered practice schedule or potential date for the intrasquad scrimmage.
