The University of Tennessee at Martin football team begins its 2015 spring practice schedule on Tuesday, March 17 at Hardy Graham Stadium.
Tuesday’s practice is the first of 15 practices over the span of 30 days for the Skyhawks, who are coming off a 6-6 overall record with a 5-3 Ohio Valley Conference mark in 2014. UT Martin concluded the season as one of the hottest teams in the Football Championship Subdivision ranks, winning five of its last six games with the only setback coming to Football Bowl Subdivision No. 1 Mississippi State.
Skyhawk head coach Jason Simpson will return 13 starters (seven on defense, six on offense) in 2015, which will be his 10th season at the helm. UT Martin officially opens the 2015 schedule with a road game at FBS member Ole Miss on Sept. 5.
