Chris Petersen will hold a press conference at 1:30 p.m. Monday, March 3 to kick off his first spring as Washington coach, with the Huskies opening spring practices at 8:15 a.m. the next day.
Practices will be open to the media, with the exception of the March 15 workout.
The 15th and final spring workout will be held April 19 — it’s described in a UW press release as a “practice session,” not the spring game — is open to the general public (with free admission) and will be broadcast live on Pac-12 Networks.

A few notes from UW (mostly pertinent to the media):
• No injured players, nor players who will be freshmen or redshirt-freshmen for the 2014 season, will be available for interviews.
• Video and photos made be taken during individual drills just after stretching (roughly a 20-minute time period). There will be no photography or videography allowed whenever the team lines up in formation and/or in 11-on-11 (even if during that 20-minute period). UW communications staff will be on hand to advise when the start and end of the photo/video period. Videographers and photographers must shoot from the field level and from the same areas from which they would shoot on a game day (i.e., not in, or behind, the team bench areas, etc.).
• Outside the photo/video portion of practice, members of the press are asked to view practice from the stadium seating areas (designated area yet to be determined) rather than from the sidelines.
• Player and coach interviews will take place on the field, near the tunnel entrance, at the end of each practice.
