PHILADELPHIA - Football is back in session at the University of Pennsylvania. Head Coach Ray Priore held his first official practice to open the 2015 Spring season on Tuesday morning at Franklin Field.

In that time, he has earned 10 Ivy League championship rings. Among the additions to his staff this season are defensive coordinator Bob Benson and offensive coordinator John Reagan, in addition to defensive line coach Malik Hall.
