The Hurricanes completed their fourth spring practice session Thursday before being dispersed by coach Al Golden for spring break.
Golden seemed genuinely pleased by the past week, and explained that the reason he always starts spring practice the week going into vacation is, basically, so the players can mentally take home with them what they’ve learned — and let it simmer.
“It’s just the philosophy of it,” he said. “Longer duration. If you can get four installs in before spring break, now you’ve increased the amount of time they’re thinking about football.
“I want them to enjoy their time off, relax, make sure we don’t get too tight — stretch, lift a little bit.”
Practice, open to the public, resumes at 9 a.m. Tuesday, March 18. Some of the players, such as track athletes, are staying at UM and continuing to work out.

The coach said he’ll play “slot receiver, Z receiver, kick return, punt return, special teams. He did all those things. He played wildcat, too.”Danny Isidora Taylor Gadbois Ereck Flowers
