Sun Belt spring primer: Freeze frame
Three new coaches take over in the Sun Belt, but changes likely will be minor for one of those programs.
Arkansas State promoted offensive coordinator Hugh Freeze to coach, and the Red Wolves are coming off one of the best offensive seasons in school history. But Freeze has to rebuild his offensive line, so there's work to be done.
Louisiana-Lafayette and North Texas are the other programs with new coaches, and both have head men who were assistants in the SEC -- UNT's Dan McCarney was defensive line coach at Florida and ULL's Mark Hudspeth had been Mississippi State's wide receivers coach.
FIU and Troy tied for the Sun Belt title last season, but each has specific areas of concern this spring.
Here's a look at the start and end dates for spring drills, as well as a quick look at what each team hopes to accomplish.
