ATHENS, Ga. (AP) — Georgia coach Mark Richt is excited about all the changes his team is going through heading into spring practice.

While much of the focus is on new defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt, there will be other adjustments when the Bulldogs begin on March 18, looking to bounce back from a disappointing season.

The practice schedule will look a little different, with an emphasis on giving everyone an equal shot at playing time. Hutson Mason isn't exactly a newcomer, but this will be the fifth-year senior's only full season as the starting quarterback after he backed up Aaron Murray most of his career. Also, there are some position changes on the horizon, most notably with running back J.J. Green shifting from offense to defense to provide more depth at cornerback.
