Mike Shanahan, Redskins’ staff to coach at Senior Bowl
Question of the Day
Mike Shanahan and the Washington Redskins coaching staff will coach the South team at the Senior Bowl in Mobile, Ala., later this month, game officials announced Saturday.
The annual showcase of draft-eligible college seniors is an occasion for NFL scouts and coaches to continue in earnest their preparation for the draft in late April.
"The Senior Bowl provides us a great opportunity to get to know some of the young players who will be selected in the 2012 NFL Draft," Shanahan said in a statement on the game's official website.
The Redskins in 2011 drafted a league-high six players who played in last year's Senior Bowl, including linebacker Ryan Kerrigan, the No. 16-overall pick.
Washington's staff last coached one side in the Senior Bowl in 1997 and 1998. Norv Turner's group won in both of those years.
Senior Bowl practices begin Monday, Jan. 23. The game is Saturday, Jan. 28. The Minnesota Vikings' staff will oversee the North team.
