Stillwater – The Oklahoma State football team finishes spring practice a week from Saturday with what they’re calling the “Spring Finale” at Boone Pickens Stadium in Stillwater on Saturday, April 20th.

The Cowboys have a new offensive coordinator in Mike Yurcich from Shippensburg University in Pennsylvania and a new defensive coordinator in former linebackers coach Glenn Spencer. Head coach Mike Gundy, starting his 8th season, says the young offensive assistant is picking things up quickly and in comments on NewsChannel 4, he says Spencer's defense is showing improvement through spring drills.

In recent days, Gundy has been complimentary of DT Calvin Barnett and LB Ryan Simmons as well as the overall effort of a defense that was shredded in the pass game numerous times last season.
