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.

The spring practice schedule:

Tuesday, March 4 – 8:15 a.m. (with offensive players and assistant coaches available for post-practices interviews, along with coach Petersen)
Thursday, March 6 – 8:15 a.m. (with defensive players and assistant coaches available for post-practices interviews)
Saturday, March 8 – 10:15 a.m. (offense interviews + Petersen)
Tuesday, March 11 – 8:15 a.m. (defense interviews + Petersen)
Thursday, March 13 – 8:15 a.m. (offense interviews)
Saturday, March 15 – CLOSED TO ALL

Then a two-week spring break, with practices resuming April 1:

Tuesday, April 1 – 8:15 a.m. (offense interviews + Petersen)
Thursday, April 3 – 8:15 a.m. (defense interviews)
Saturday, April 5 – 10:15 a.m. (offense interviews + Petersen)
Tuesday, April 8 – 8:15 a.m. (defense interviews + Petersen)
Thursday, April 10 – 8:15 a.m. (offense interviews)
Saturday, April 12 – 10:15 a.m. (defense interviews + Petersen)
Tuesday, April 15 – 8:15 a.m. (offense interviews + Petersen)
Thursday, April 17 – 8:15 a.m. (defense interviews)
Saturday, April 19 – 1 p.m. – open to the public, live TV coverage 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.
