For the third time, Marvin Lewis’ Cincinnati Bengals coaching staff will work the annual Senior Bowl.
“I have always felt that if we’re not going to be coaching in the NFL playoffs, we should go to work and get to know some of the new prospects as well as we can,” Lewis said. “Coaching the Senior Bowl has been extremely helpful the two times we’ve had an opportunity to do it, and I’ve had a couple other opportunities to do it on other staffs. I think it’s always a plus. It gives you a good insight into the players — to their temperaments, how they learn, what kind of guys they are and how they compete.
“So we’re excited to once again have this opportunity. This game always has the best players from around the country. We will get a lot out of working directly with them in practice and in the game.”
The Bengals will coach the North squad, while Chan Gailey and the Buffalo Bills coaching staff will coach the South.
Senior Bowl week begins on January 24, with the game scheduled for 4pm ET on Ladd-Peebles Stadium in Mobile, Alabama.
