    First-year Tennessee football coach Josh Heupel met with the media following the Vols’ first practice of spring on Thursday afternoon. Heupel discussed the status of Kaidon Salter, players potentially changing positions, his thoughts on his quarterbacks and much more. Here’s everything Heupel had to say:

    Opening Statement:

    “It was a great day for our program. Started off with Pro Day, a great opportunity. Tons of pro personnel in here. An opportunity for our guys that have finished their careers here to go out and perform in front of them and put their best foot forward. I thought our players did a great job during the course of the morning, representing themselves and the program. Enjoyed the opportunity to talk about them, about their careers and who they are with the personnel that was here. Great representation from almost every team.

    “And then this afternoon, really exciting day for us. Guys have been really hard in the first quarter of our offseason program, strength and conditioning, and then them having an opportunity to go out, Day 1, and practice, man. Compete, make a bunch of mistakes, get a whole lot better through the course of it as well. Saw a tremendous amount of energy and effort from those guys. Took coaching extremely well, really positive with each other. Lot of things we’ve been working on as far as our accountability and just the way we interact and communicate with each other, players and coaches alike. Saw a lot of those things in a positive way during the course of practice. Excited as we continue to go through spring.”
