Florida football fans will have a chance to witness the official launch of the Dan Mullen era with the start of spring practice next month.

Mullen announced Monday that the first two practices (March 16-17) are going to be open to the public.

The open practices will be at the Sanders Practice Fields next to the O’Connell center and McKethan Stadium. Bleachers will be set up on the east side of the practice field. Fans also can stand and view practice on the east and south sides.

Open practice times will be announced at a later date.

UF is also opening two practices to UF Faculty and Staff and Area Responders and City and Game Officials.

UF also announced that the Gators’ annual Pro Day will be held March 28 in the indoor practice facility.
