Spring football is back. Rice football is scheduled to kick off its spring schedule on Monday, March 1. Stay tuned to The Roost for updates.
Rice football will begin spring practices on March 1. The spring football roster, including early enrollees and returning seniors, was released mid-February but might have gotten lost in the shuffle considering everything that’s gone on in Houston over the past two weeks.
We’ve broken down the most notable changes and shifts on that new roster for subscribers here. We’ll also be providing updates throughout the month as practices progress. There will be details on important competitions like quarterback and wide receiver plus notes on a few new faces just recently arriving on South Main.
Our Starting Lineup tier subscribers will get access to every update from spring practices. You’ll also get access to all recruiting updates, past and future as well as any special features along the way. Offers for the class of 2022 are picking up as Rice looks to build off consecutive strong classes.
There should also soon be an announcement regarding the changes on the coaching staff. Departing from the staff are offensive coordinator Jerry Mack and special team’s coordinator Drew Svoboda. Rice is expected to name former Cal tight ends coach Marques Tuiasosopo as their new offensive coordinator. Jim Jackson, formerly of UMass, will coach tight ends.
