"I don't see any way (the spring game) is going to happen," Castiglione said. "I can't sit here and tell you when any team is going to be able to get back and have a normal practice. So to sit here and think we're going to have a spring game and not be able to even say when we can return to practice is silly."
Coronavirus has swept the globe and canceled sporting events worldwide. The NCAA canceled all remaining winter and spring seasons, and the NBA, NHL and MLS all suspended their seasons.
