Florida football coach Billy Napier will make 10 different stops in nine cities in his spring speaking tour.

Napier's first speaking appearance will be on March 20 in Melbourne and will include stops in Miami, Fort Myers, Sarasota, New York City and two engagements in Gainesville.

The Gators are looking to bounce back from a 6-7 campaign in Napier's first season, which ended with a 30-3 loss to Oregon State in the Las Vegas Bowl.

More information on regional events can be found on the UF Alumni Association's website, with ticket information available here.
