NEW ORLEANS — Tulane head coach Willie Fritz has several items to check off his spring football list, including finding a backup for starting quarterback Jonathan Banks.

Sophomore Dane Ledford and true freshman Christian Daniels were among those taking snaps at quarterback at Monday’s practice, the first of the spring.

Here’s video of the day from WGNO Sports, including the first day on the field for new assistant coach, JJ McCleskey, a former New Orleans Saint.

Fritz talked about the play of his quarterbacks after practice.

Tulane's spring game is Saturday April 14th. The season opener is August 30th, a Thursday, at home, against Wake Forest.
