Kyler Murray, Tommie Harris among honorary coaches for OU Spring Game

There will be plenty of firepower on the sidelines at the Oklahoma Spring Game on Friday night.

Heisman Trophy winner Kyler Murray is among the seven honorary coaches for the game.

Murray will team up with Orlando Brown, Lane Johnson and Joe Washington for the Red Team. Tommie Harris, Billy Sims and Dede Westbrook will be the honorary coaches for the White Team.

The game will kick off at 7:30 p.m. Friday at Gaylord Family—Oklahoma Memorial Stadium. It was moved up a day due to expected inclement weather Saturday.

Quarterback Jalen Hurts, who transferred from Alabama and is the favorite to replace Murray, will play for the Red squad. He'll have a trio of highly touted freshmen on his team in receivers TrejanBridges, Theo Wease and tight end Austin Stogner. Tanner Schafer is the Red's other quarterback.

The Red defense will be highlighted by defensive lineman Neville Gallimore, linebacker Kenneth Murray and defensive back Brendan Radley-Hiles.

Receiver CeeDee Lamb highlights the White roster, which also includes receiver Charleston Rambo and running backs Trey Sermon and T.J. Pledger.  Tanner Mordecai, Connor McGinnis and ColtAtkinson are the quarterbacks. The White defense will feature rush linebacker Ronnie Perkins and cornerback Parnell Motley.
