Dolphins, Lions staffs to coach Senior Bowl

Contrary to a recent report that the Bucs will coach one of the Senior Bowl squads, the folks running the show have announced that the staffs from the Lions and Dolphins will get the nod.

It’s a great opportunity for both teams to get an up-close look at members of the incoming draft class.  The assignment usually goes to non-playoff teams with coaching staffs regarded as stable.

“My staff and I are looking forward to coaching in the Senior Bowl,” Sparano said in a release.  “The Senior Bowl’s outstanding track record and history of developing players for the National Football League is well-known and we’re excited to have the opportunity to work with these young players in preparation for the next stage of their careers.”

The game will be played in Mobile, Alabama on January 30.  All practices and the game will be televised by NFL Network.
