The Senior Bowl is considered the biggest offseason event for college football’s top stars heading to the NFL, outside of the NFL Scouting Combine of course. This year’s game will see coaches from the Tennessee Titans and Jacksonville Jaguars get the opportunity to coach the top seniors next month. The Senior Bowl announced the decision Tuesday evening.
This will be the second time the NFL franchises have sent coaches to the Senior Bowl, and this is the second straight season the Jaguars have had their coaches in the game. Titans head coach Ken Whisenhunt and his staff will coach the North team. Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley and his staff will coach the South team.
“It’s always an honor and a privilege for the Reese’s Senior Bowl to have our game coached by NFL staffs and 2015 will be no exception,” said Reese’s Senior Bowl Executive Director Phil Savage.
The Senior Bowl in Mobile, Alabama will be held on January 24, 2015 at Ladd-Peebles Stadium. Kickoff is set for 4:00 p.m. eastern. The game will be seen on NFL Network.
The Titans have the second pick in the 2015 NFL Draft. The Jaguars are set to draft with the third overall pick. The game is an excellent chance for the coaches to get a chance to work with a number of potential draft picks, but the week is full of scouting opportunities for coaches and scouts from around the league.
